I don't know how your bootscripts for network/dhcpcd work but ensure you use
"dhcpcd -k" to terminate dhcpcd instead of a kill. (not sure if not using
it would actualy cause problems, never tried) If you were already doing so,
then I don't know, would need more details...
>From dhcpcd manpage:
-k Sends SIGHUP signal to the dhcpcd process that is
currently running. If dhcpcd receives SIGHUP it
will send DCHP_RELEASE message to the server and
destroy dhcpcd cache. In a case dhcpcd receives
SIGTERM which is normally used by shutdown(8) when
rebooting the system dhcpcd will not send
DHCP_RELEASE and will not destroy cache. When sys-
tem boots dhcpcd will use cache to request the same
IP address from DHCP server which was assigned
before the system went down.
If you use SIGTERM (kill -15) to terminate it, cache will not be deleted. Is
this your problem? If yes, that should solve it.
