It's working fine for me from RHEL5 Linux DNS servers and from Windows
DNS servers.

In my case it's using FreeBSD and Solaris.

The problem might be related to where you do queries from?

Anyway, I tried some other nameservers / "looking glass" sites, like
- I can't vouch for how good they normally are, but these were ones I
found when searching for "dns looking glass":
I can look up other domains fine, but when looking up "" it
comes back with: connection timed out; no servers could be reached
It times out when I do a "Get DNS Records" query for ""

When testing for yourself, please keep in mind that limited queries seem
to work fine (like, asking for A records, or MX), but doing any-queries
which give everything seems to fail.
