Hello,
When a client receive a OFFER ACK message it must check the transaction ID.
Why the field chaddr must not be validate?

I have a case in which two different clients generate the same transaction ID. OK I am very unluky but this has happen.
Both the clients accepts the OFFERs and the ACKs sent in broadcast and get the same IP address.
If the clients would check the chaddr before accepting a message this would not be occured.

There are some unknow (to me) side effects created by a clients that execs this check of the chaddr field?
Thank you
Lorenzo
