   dhclient manages DHCP for the interface.  It usually sticks around
   in the background in order to keep the lease renewed.

   It sounds like the dhclient program is going into a tight loop
   logging errors after you pulled the card.  That is definitely a bug.  It's
   probably eating cpu.  Do a 'top' or 'systat -vm 1' to see.  You
   can kill dhclient manually with something like 'killall -9 dhclient'.

Hmm. Probably the best fix is to have dhclient exit when it gets a
device not configured error, since that means the device was pulled.


Yep, 'top' shows that dhclient is averaging about 60 - 70 percent CPU with syslogd consuming the rest.
