I ran Bind 8.4.3 in an prductions environment compiled _without_ IPv6 Support
on a dualstack Linux 2.6 kernel since it was released and i do not see any
other problems. It even runs smoother, faster and is using half the CPU power
the bind9.2.3, i run behind the same round-robin load-balancer, does.
Since there is no sign of 8.4.4 for over a month now i am going to 'downgrade'
another bind9 machine which is running at its limits with bind9 to bind8.4.3
to smoothen things.
Dear ISC: If you would vote against this then _say_ something, for it is due
to the catastrophic lack of information you're giving to this list that i am
doing this.
