	Chris when you see somthing that is obviously a bug in a
	current release please log a bug report.  If you see a bug
	and you are not running a current release please upgrade
	to see if it is fixed, then if it still there please log a
	bug report.  Sending things to bind-users then hoping a
	developer will see the report and log the bug is not the
	optimal way to do things.

	Bug reports can be sent to:

		bind9-bugs at
		libbind-bugs at

	If you send it to the wrong bugs list we can move to the
	correct one.
