I never see a "cleaning process" going on where BIND stops responding to
queries. If you built BIND as a threaded application, you will see some
interesting effects if it gets paged out. The paging problem may be fixed
in -current.

Running Bind 9.3.1 on NetBSD 1.5.4 just works 24x7 without a hitch.
