[Dnsmasq-discuss] Method to re-acquire client leases after server reboots?

I use dnsmasq with OpenWRT on the WRT54G router.  These routers store their
lease files in RAM in /tmp/dhcp.leases.  They do occasionally need rebooting
when they become unstable.  Is there a way for dnsmasq to re-acquire the
leases after a reboot?  It's a bit annoying to not be able to ping clients
by their hostname when the lease file is lost.  Can dnsmasq force clients to
renew their leases early if they aren't in the lease file?  Or should I just
give the clients short leases?
