Lucky for us, the principle maintainer of BIND's IXFR implementation speaks
NT.  He had already fixed this in our pool, so it will be part of 8.2.2-P2.

Note that this error can only come from trusted UPDATE sources, and as such
it isn't a full blown DoS hole.  (UPDATEs are *highly* trusted, meaning that
only someone you trust a LOT can send them to you at all.)

Thanks, Stuart.
