Hi - I wrote one of those patches.

I just wanted to say that I'm not in a position to test anymore, as in
Ubuntu/LTSP we've moved on to using udhcp because of those specific
ipconfig problems (and we didn't want to keep maintaining a separate
branch). So I almost never use ipconfig anymore.

About the patch, I remember that I had spent many days testing it and
following all the possible code paths. I think it solved 3-4 scenarios
where things could go wrong without it, but I also think that there was
another bug which should be solved, and that patch didn't address it.

So if anyone cares about my opinion, I'd suggest that this patch was
included, and that some time was spent on the other (but similar) bug
that I had described in the list.

Kind regards,
