    initial v1  
    1 Doing dhcp_release() in close-tun does resolve this. And release appears to work without needing admin rights, so this could be a fix for the problem I reported -- not necessarily a fix for Track 635 and similar reports with one adapter and multiple remotes.

    3 We already have the code required for dhcp release -- normally called in  close_tun if {{{--dhcp-release}}} is in the config. I think it should be always called. The man page talks about some caveats of using this option but nothing mentioned sounds like "caveats".

    55There is also an undocumented --dhcp-pre-release option to do dhcp release in open_tun which appears unnecessary as dhcp renew will lead to a release unless the address hasn't changed.
