Thanks for that tip.  I'll study host and dig...

No - it was in the lease file - I'm sure of it.  And I watched the dnsmasq
log file as the addresses were handed out.  And the addresses in the lease
file matched the address I saw when running 'ifconfig' on the console.

In the course of debugging, I re-assigned the DHCP address over and over.
(by running 'sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart' on the )  Could frequent
re-assignment have caused some sort of problem ??
