Try to disable the "dnstool" that comes with redhat and edit the
files "by hand".  ( dnstool stores config information and
generates configinfo whenever it wants too ( or moon is full whatever
comes first).

Same symptoms for the tools that tries to configure sendmail : remove 
and use "standard tools".
