Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What tells you it’s duplicate – Windows? If the address somehow got registered in ActiveDirectory or WINS, it will sit there for a while. IP addresses will function fine moving from computer to computer and will expire, but Windows will keep track for a while (a week, maybe?) before releasing; unless you forcefully remove that registration.
