Thanks for the private replies...
All this comes about as I had the expectation that DIG would run in a
similar way to any other 'dns lookup' - which it currently doesn't.
Neither does it have any form of config file. So adding '+dnssec'
obviously adds the '+edns=0' switch. I'm told that in a future software
release that '+edns=0' will be default behaviour - that sounds like a
reasonable thing to do.
