Quick&dirty workaround: disable ARP checking by defining

I'm no expert in DHCP nor ARP, but I don't see anything similar to what
you are experiencing.
I've setup three scenarios:
1- different IP (static) prior to DHCP
2- same IP (static) prior to DHCP
In scenarios 1 and 3, everything works "as expected"
In scenario 2, I see a "gratuitous ARP", but the address is accepted
anyway. Here is my capture:

No.     Time           Source                Destination

DHCP     350    DHCP Discover - Transaction ID 0xabcd0001

      2 0.001705000          
DHCP     342    DHCP Offer    - Transaction ID 0xabcd0001

      3 0.002564000      
DHCP     350    DHCP Request  - Transaction ID 0xabcd0002

      4 0.040420000          
DHCP     342    DHCP ACK      - Transaction ID 0xabcd0002

I suggest you check your options and step the code to see where this
rejection takes place
