[THIN] OT: Weird VM W2K8 IP Address issue

VM (ESX) cloned from a template - I can change the IPA and it takes as
verified by an IPCONFIG but when you open the network properties and look at
IPv4 it's always got a different IPA listed. Click on advance and both IPAs
show up - the correct one and the one that always shows up - hit cancel, go
back to a command prompt and run IPCONFIG - correct IPA shows up and I can
ping the proper GW (the two IPAs are different subnets). So it's technically
working, but annoying as can't seem to stop the second IPA from appearing in
the property GUI.

Other VMs have been cloned from the same template w/o this issue. I've
removed and added the NIC for fun, didn't help.

Any clues? I'd uninstall IPv4 but W2K8 seems to think that shouldn't be
allowed of course.
