I did say "based" :-)  The IP address, netmask and router etc were all
modified to match what the machine originally had - so I know they
work and not covered by the DHCP server.

I actually expected it to not find the DHCP server (didn't think it
was connected to this sub-net) and fall back to the static lease.
