Security Fixes


     * Change #2912 (see CHANGES) exposed a latent bug in the DNS message
       processing code that could allow certain UPDATE requests to crash
       named. This was fixed by disambiguating internal database
       representation vs DNS wire format data. [RT #24777] [CVE-2011-2464]
