bind dies with assertion failure

As mentioned more than once on this list.  Redhat starts with an upstream version of a given package (say BIND 9.7) then backports security and bug fixes from later upstream versions into theirs and add extended versioning (say 9.7-2.3.1).  One would have to check Redhat's version to see what fixes it actually contains.

Are you sure about this?

 From what I can see in our local yum repo of the RHEL6 ISOs, it shipped with bind 9.7.

Sure that isn't a local package, or you're joined into a non-production channel?
