Why is /etc/issue printed more than once? The IP addresses don't change.

Well, the problem is obviously not IP address change, but the fact that
(a)getty gets reinitialized and redisplays /etc/issue. This could be
result of

- (some) interfaces constantly appear and disappear. They do not need to
be the same which IPs are displayed - every time interface is added or
deleted (i.e. kernel event happens), issue-generator runs "agetty
--reload". In principle, buggy driver sending periodic add events cannot
be excluded either.

"agetty --reloaded" is only called if an interface in /etc/issue is added
or removed, not for every random network interface.

So you really need to debug it on your system. The fact that it started
to happen when issue-generator was introduced does not mean it is caused
by issue generator.

Easy to find out: edit /etc/sysconfig/issue-generator and disable the
network interfaces.
