[Bug 1586528] Re: Avahi-daemon withdraws address record

Avahi is not the one actively withdrawing the address, this log message
is a reaction to the address record being removed from the system.. it
withdraws the mDNS "record" for this address.

Most likely theory for this is that DHCP is deciding to drop the address
for some reason (lease expired and couldn't renew) or something else
like that.  In any case issue will be Network Manager related more than

Bug description:
  For some reason, if I leave my Ubuntu VM up for a prolonged period of
  time the machine will lose connection to the network.  ip addr shows
  that the nic port no longer has an address and an examination of the
  syslog shows this:

  May 27 14:19:38 matt-VirtualBox avahi-daemon[590]: Withdrawing address record for on enp0s3.
  May 27 14:19:38 matt-VirtualBox avahi-daemon[590]: Leaving mDNS multicast group on interface enp0s3.IPv4 with address
  May 27 14:19:38 matt-VirtualBox avahi-daemon[590]: Interface enp0s3.IPv4 no longer relevant for mDNS.

  for no known reason.

  The only reliable way to get the network to come back (that I have
  found) is a full reboot.
