It looks like openWRT configures dnsmasq to keep the DHCP lease database on a RAM-based volatile filesystem. You might like to look at the HAVE_BROKEN_RTC compile time option. This is designed to reduce the number of writes of the lease file (to reduce wear on Flash) and changes the way time stamps are stored, so they work on a system which doesn't keep time over reboots. It's designed for systems like the Linksys routers, and might enable you to put the lease file in on the flash filesystem.

Keeping the lease file on non-volatlie storage would solve this problem:
