There is no code that corresponds to the INSIST line in 9.2.1.  It does
correspond to an INSIST line in 9.2.0.  Are you sure you are running
9.2.1?  It could be that you have mixed versions.  If BIND it telling you that
it is running 9.2.1 in the application event log, please uninstall using the
BINDInstall program and selecting the Uninstall button.  Then exit and
run BINDInstall to reinstall the program.
