I put in a fix for this problem. Cancels that were being signaled were
not being properly recognized on Windows. The error is actually fairly
innocuous but it does fill up the log. The newer versions of BIND are
much more aggressive in canceling requests that are not getting
responses which is why they were not being seen before. I'm hoping it
will get into 9.7.2 since it is a one-line fix but I don't control the
releases so I don't know.
