I was just going to post that the problem was briefly cleared up by
doing a restart on named. Does that fit the above profile?

This wasn't happening when we had it installed on another RHEL4 ES U1
host but when it lost a root drive I took all of it's named and dhcpd
and moved it over to this host with appropriate edits. Any other
possibilities here?
