How reproducible:
Didn't try

Additional info:

I have a TCP dump at http://www.roaringpenguin.com/bind-crash.tcpdump that shows
the packets being exchanged.  It was produced with "tcpdump -w"; you can open it
with Ethereal or tcpdump -r.

I rated this as "security" because a segfault in named makes me very, very, very

Created attachment 94705 [details]
Tcpdump of traffic that crashed bind-9.2.1-9

This tcpdump was created using "tcpdump -s 1500 -w filename -i ppp0 port 53" 
You can look at it with ethereal or "tcpdump -r"
Comment 2 DIanne Skoll 2003-09-24 22:44:37 EDT
Never mind... my /usr/lib/libdns.so.5.0.3 had somehow become modified.  I need
to figure out how, but reinstalling the RPM fixed it.
