Version of Bind is 9.2.1. It hasn't been upgraded at all. The only thing
that I can find different is that the /var fs filled up and caused a
number of problems with logs, etc. I checked to see if any of the zone
files were corrupted but it doesn't appear so. I also tried running named
-u root just to see if it was a permission thing, but it still doesn't
work outside of debug mode.
