[Dnsmasq-discuss] failed to bind DHCP server socket: Address

i have two DHCP-Servers / Forwarders running on one machine. My router
have five interfaces one for LAN, WIRELESS, SERVER, IP-TUNNEL and one
On WAN there is running a dhcp-client to assign an official ip-address
from my ISP. On Wireless and IP-Tunnel runs the DHCP-Forwarder
(dhcp-fwd) wich is connected to only this two interfaces.
Now i like to setup dnsmasq on the last two interfaces (lan and server).
But i can not start dnsmasq without the following error-message: failed
to bind DHCP server socket: Address already in use
My configuration-file like this:
--- SNIP ---
# Port Settings
# Include another lot of configuration options
--- SNAP ---
Why is DNSMASQ listen on all Interfaces? DHCP-FWD is also listen to only
the defined interfaces (wlan and ip-tunnel).
Thanks in advance,
