	Looks like bugs on the error paths.  If you have core dumps
	stack backtraces would be useful.  Note as you are running with
	'named -u' core dumping will be disabled as a side effect of the
	setuid() call.  This can be overridden on some systems.

		FreeBSD: sysctl kern.sugid_coredump=1

	Stack backtraces along w/ associated error messages should be
	sent to bind9-bugs at isc.org.  Individual messages failure.

	You need to ensure the process gets more memory or limit the
	about of memory the process uses.

	Increase the per/process memory limit (note on some OS the kernel
	may also need to be tuned to allow bigger per/process limits).

		options { datasize 1000M; };
	Limit the amount of memory used by the process.

		options/view { max-cache-size 300M; };

	Note: this limits the memory used by the cache.  You also need
	to account for the memory used to serve zones, etc.  Each cache
	has a seperate limit.
