I think I have sometimes seen this, but I do not know what provokes it. The most
likely explanation is installing more than one network management system and/or
leaving more than one configured. So for example I have had ifupdown and wicd both
attempt to manage interfaces.

If you look at the parent PID for the dhclient instances, you might get some clues.
(ps -eaf --forest for example, or pstree(1))
