Does some datagram always arrive just before every core dump too?

	datagram from [].53, fd 4, len 203
	Segmentation fault - core dumped

If this is all public DNS info then it's all public info anyway!  ;-)

Have you compiled named with '-g' and run 'gdb' to find out where it's
dumping core yet?

	cd /usr/src/usr.sbin/bind/named
	make clean
	make COPTS='-g -O2 -pipe' install
	/etc/rc.d/named restart
	gdb /usr/sbin/named named.core
