Hi Oliver,

Are you by chance using either dhcpstart or dhcpend options? What  
version of chilli are you using? Check "chilli --help" to see if  
dhcpstart/dhcpend have default values (in the current svn, they  
default to '0' for disabled). If you are indeed using dhcpstart/ 
dhcpstop, make sure the range does NOT include the uamlisten IP...  
(so, if that is .1, use dhcpstart=2 and dhcpend=127).
