Well, I know that, but I'm pretty sure I never started named manually,
that's what confused me. I have, however, /etc/rc.d/named stop in
my /etc/ppp/ip-down and /etc/rc.d/named stop in my /etc/ppp/ip-up, so
it seems something went wrong there.

Anyway, the reason I do that is that named complains when the
connections is lost and adds a message to syslog about each message.
This is more an ugly workaround than anything else. So I think I should
find out why it does that and fix that.
