Howdy -

I am getting this error when starting up named (ver 9.3.1)
zone test.net/IN/external: journal rollforward failed: not exact

running in debug mode, it _appears_ that it is complaining about
deleting a record that does not exist.

I thought deleting a non-existing RR via nsupdate was a NO-OP.


1. Is the deletion of a non-existent RR causing this problem?

2. If not, any suggestions on how this happened?

Using journalprint on the .jnl file doesn't show anything odd.

I can send the zone and .jnl file if anyone wants to take a look.
