The address is statically assigned via the corresponding
"/etc/ifconfig.bge?" files.

I've noticed (on the rare occasions when I have access to the machine's
console) that any change to the interfaces causes them to report "no
carrier" for a brief period afterward, even though there's been no change
to their physical connection.

Perhaps this persists long enough to cause 'named' to ignore the interface?

Given my above observation, this seems an eminently reasonable thing
to try.  I'll do that when the machine is finished with its current 
task and can be rebooted.
