Since this problem is likely being caused by the version of BIND 
provided by Redhat and not with the release version, this issue is not 
pertinent to the list. I don't want to clutter up the list with 
off-topic conversations.

If anyone is interested in Redhat's response we can take the 
conversation offlist but I'm not hopeful they'll do anything about it. 
While it's always better to compile and install from the latest stable 
version, it's also nice to use their package management system 
especially when you have to deal with multiple systems.
