      Description

      Hi,

      I'm using CFEngine 3.6.0, and I have lots of client-server communication issue, where a node cannot fetch their promise from the server any more
      cf-key reports an incoherent database, and digging into cf_lastseen.lmbd, I notice that I have 1 k value for two a values ; so when client change their ip
      I'm happily trusting a subnetwork where the nodes are, so it should not be an issue

      It used to work flowlessly on 3.5.3 and before.
      Stopping the server and execd, purging cf_lastseen.lmdb workaround the issue, but it is clunky; more, there is no easy way to detect this error, unless by trying to delete a random key

      Interestingly, sometimes its on the client side that the issue arises
