DHCP server shows active leases with a paintbrush or pencil over the computer icon. Haven't seen this before, what's it mean?

Is this something that will fix itself? Is it a problem that I need to fix?

It means that the lease is active and waiting for the DDNS registration.

That depends on your DNS setup. If you have clients running W2k or later, there's no point in using the DNS registration through DHCP, those clients will do that by themselves, you can disable it then.
