I hadn't heard of that option. Is packet sockets enabled by default?

In current kernels it's available as a module loadable at runtime.

What happens if a duplicate is found?

IIRC while setup a found duplicate causes the setup to stop.

What happens if a DHCP address
has been assigned and then someone manually assigns that address on
another computer, which IIRC is the case in the original message?

This is a more complex situation and I'm not sure if we're able to do
anthing than logging and informing the user.

Might we use dbus to pass a message to the end user sitting in front of
the session?
