I unpushed the update
and will look at this.
Hmm, that's strange because I've been running (locally built) 4.2.3-22.P2 on my production F16 machine since yesterday and now also the packages from the update on F17 virtual machine and have seen no problems. Both are x86_64.
I need you to provide some more info about your network configuration, like:
- your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-<iface> file
- do you run NetworkManager ?
And I would probably need to see a stack trace, it would be awesome if you can get one, see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/StackTraces

-I do use NetworkManager.
-There is no ifcfg file for p5p1
Thanks, the core dump (in abrt attachment) has been very useful.
Could you try this build ?
Just out of curiosity:
There seems to be some "teql0" interface on your system, do you have any idea what it is ?
dhcp-4.2.3-23.P2.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.

abrt - from 4.2.3-23.P2.fc17
Sigfault with new version.
ok, scratch-build this time:
That fixed it. :)
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 17 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing dhcp-4.2.3-24.P2.fc17'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
I have one more improvement and I'll be glad if you could give it a try. Thanks.
All is well with 4.2.3-24.1.P2.fc17 as far as I can tell.
