Given that this change alone does not fix the bug then there must be
other changes elsewhere (ns_main.c or ns_req.c most likely). Either
that or they've prematurely released it -- there was no talk about it on
the bind-workers list, and not even a reply to my query about my patch.
There's not even been an announcement of its availability reach my
mailbox yet and yet I see from the FTP site that it's apparently been
available for nearly four hours.
I'll import it to my local repository and do some deeper diffs....
and of course I'll test it too! :-)
