         Make sure that you no longer have the old version of BIND running.
   Try rebooting and look at the event logs.  It should tell you when it starts
   up what version it's running. It should give you other information while reading
   named.conf and loading the zones.  What are the messages you get?
   Is there any indication of what it's doing when the crash happens?  Did a
   zone transfer happen right before the crash?  What version of BIND is
   the master server running.  How many records do you have in the zone?
   Are there any tmp files in the /etc directory?  If so what's in them?
