Yes, I didn't see dhclient or iPXE doing any addr-in-use checks either.

So we'll probably keep using isc-dhcp as the LTSP default, and provide 
an ltsp-server-dnsmasq package for those that want to use the proxy DHCP 
mode of dnsmasq (and let me say thanks for that once more, it's a real 
life saver).
