Oh yes, and bizarre may happen if you have two machines with the same
static IP _simultaneously_ on the network. To check if that is the case
(for particular IP, say from the machine with different IP on
the same subnet 192.168.2.x do


you will get ARP responses from all machines, and if there is more than
one, you will see responces coming from different MAC addresses.
