I've not yet had time to investigate that...

I've not seen that, but then I don't run a local nameserver, either.
As far as I know, there have been no changes to named between that
release and the current one...

The BIND support in the tree _is_ 4.9.3...  I'd really rather you
try to debug the problem, rather than punting on the one in the
tree...  Otherwise, the one in the tree will remain broken.
