I once had a long battle with dhcp (which it won :-), but I
think I remember discovering that it just does the first thing
it sees.

Your subnet range is from 50 to 100, but your host definition
with the fixed-address is for 50, which is inside the subnet
range. I'm pretty sure you need to have any separate fixed-address
definitions outside the subnet range (otherwise it might assign
some completely different device one of the fixed addresses).
