[Dnsmasq-discuss] IP allocation based on MAC address problem

I've been using dnsmasq ages and I love it. However, I've always had 1
problem which I really want to fix now. The problem is that I have a
DHCP client PC which I want to be allocated the same IP address
whenever it logs on based on its MAC address. So I have this in
### PME - Always allocate XXX a fixed IP
But whenever this machine connects it gets allocated a different IP
address (it actually gets 192.168.0.185) . I don't understand why this
is because I thought this was the syntax. Can anyone advise what the
trick is to get this working?
Also, when I do make a change, do I have to do something (as well as
restarting dnsmasq) to "flush" the current settings. Delete the
/var/lib/misc/dnsmasq.leases file, for example?
