Description Frank Sweetser 2007-12-05 10:56:44 EST

Bind on Fedora 7, when told to look up the PTR record for an IP address that
doesn't have one, gave an appropriate error of NXDOMAIN:

[fs@trapeze ~]$ host
Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

On Fedora 8, however, it gives a misleading error message that sounds like you
gave it a bad query:

tty/5 1007 erwin 10:52:21 $ host
host: '' is not a legal name (unexpected end of input)

Yes, regression caused by "IDN" patch
Comment 2 Adam Tkac 2007-12-11 07:24:40 EST
Fix is commited in CVS, will be in next build
