Exactly! You don't want that. If you change the IP address of an
interface, DHCP should become disabled for that particular interface
only. DHCP on the other interfaces should continue to function normally.
In my case I used to have a small test network on one interface, but
I later needed to use the interface for other purposes, so I had to
change its IP address. However, I had forgotten about DHCP running on
the interface. Immediately after changing the IP address, everything
seemed fine, but after lunch, a trickle of complaints about network
connectivity started to come in from people on *another* interface as
leases began to expire.

Of course, once you know this can happen, you can avoid it. No need
to restart the system.
