Package: wicd-daemon
Version: 1.7.4+tb2-6+devuan1.1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I am using wicd with udhcpc on a wired connection on a laptop.
On hibernate/resume, wicd puts the interface down and up, but udhcpc is not
The result is that there are more and more udhcpc processes running on the same
interface (eth0).
I expect to have one udhcpc running when the interface is up, and zero when it
is down.
