  It used to print the header field names and values, and then *also* any attributes in the packet.  If the packet included attributes for the header, those attributes would be printed twice.

  OK, the first time it prints it out normally, the second time it perhaps has an incorrect htonl()?

  DHCP-Server-host-Name is there, but it's garbage.

  What does the actual packet look like?

  i.e. is this just a *debug output* issue, or is the packet wrong?
