Description of problem:

I use NetworkManager for my wireless connection, and it uses dhclient to get an IP address from my (stupid Belkin) wireless access point.

But it seems like it creates a lease file it can't parse:

Oct 25 14:15:10 localhost dhclient: Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client 4.1.0p1
Oct 25 14:15:10 localhost dhclient: Copyright 2004-2009 Internet Systems Consortium.

Oct 25 14:15:11 localhost dhclient: DHCPACK from 192.168.2.1
Oct 25 14:15:11 localhost dhclient: bound to 192.168.2.2 -- renewal in 891007136 seconds.

There might be something wrong with the dhcp server, but I would expect it to fail with something more specific than a syntax error in dhclients own cache file.

I also miss information about how serious the syntax error is. Is it just a warning? Or is the lease file completely invalid?
