I addressed _that_ days ago - and suggested he just remove dhclient (which
he did).

I tend to take a different approach.  (1) stop the problem (in this case
remove dhclient, and it will certainly never again get a DHCP assigned
address); (2) find a better way to do what you've been doing, if possible. 
We're way past (1), so now we have time to play with (2).
