I just looked at our lab machines running NetBSD/i386 2.99.10 and 4 of them 
have named.core's created in the last week (any before that would have been 
cleaned out).  All the cores correspond to a shutdown (but not every 
shutdown) and all the core's give the following backtrace:

(gdb) where
#0  0x481fe373 in kill () from /usr/lib/
#1  0x481dbab4 in pthread__assertfunc () from /usr/lib/
#2  0x481d78eb in pthread__next () from /usr/lib/
#3  0x481d595b in pthread__upcall () from /usr/lib/

These are basically caching only named's doing no dynamic DNS or anything
