[Dnsmasq-discuss] "not giving name"

dnsmasq sometimes refuses to send a name to a host with the msg:

not giving name aar to the DHCP lease of because the name exists in /etc/dnsmasq/hosts with address

This is correct. The problem is that the department is divided in
vlans, and the same machine gets different IPs when connected to
points in different vlans.

I wonder if dnsmasq should send the name if it finds it corresponding
to that IP in a config file, even if the name is repeated. Perhaps
just a warning could be put in the log... Opinions?
