My two guesses are:
1) It might have something to do with the request coming after the T1
time (half the lease time), and it wasn't renewed then,

2) or (more likely) the server doesn't look for an existing lease
unless the client asks for an address (REQUEST) that's different from
the one OFFERed.

Some tcpdumping in both situations could probably shed some light on it.
