ISC's RCs are generally OK. When I updated BIND in 6.3, I could choose either
9.8.1-P* or 9.8.2rc1. So I decided to pick 9.8.2rc1 because it contains many
bugfixes over 9.8.1. And from 9.8.2 changelog it doesn't seems there are
regression fixes for bugs which aren't present in 9.8.1, are present in 9.8.2rc1
and are fixed in 9.8.2 (except RT #27738 which is already fixed).

However it seems you hit some bug which isn't present in 9.8.1, is present in
9.8.2rc1 and is fixed in 9.8.2. Can you please tell me number of that bug so we
can backport the patch? Thank you in advance.
