9.3 works just fine on my BSD/OS 4.3 box. Try recompiling BIND9 with
threading disabled. I had similar problems a long time ago and they
went away when thread support was removed. There's probably a bug in
the BSD/OS threads library that the BIND9 code is tickling. Running a
threaded version of BIND on a uniprocessor isn't advisable anyway.
