Bug Description

Binary package hint: isc-dhcp-client

In Ubuntu SERVER 11.04 (natty) dhclient uses (IMO) wrong path for dhclient's lease files:
dhclient3 -e IF_METRIC=100 -pf /var/run/dhclient.eth0.pid -lf /var/lib/dhcp3/dhclient.eth0.leases eth0

In /etc/apparmor.d/sbin.dhclient there's a line:
/var/lib/dhcp/dhclient* lrw,

which causes an error message to syslog:
dhclient: can't create /var/lib/dhcp3/dhclient.eth0.leases: Permission denied

So I think correct path for the lease files should be /var/lib/dhcp/

Desktop Natty with Network-Manager seems work fine.
