This would only happen if you database somehow became corrupt.  Do you have any
idea what happened?  The code should be raising a database corrupt exception.  I
will fix it after release but would like to know how you got into this state. 
You will need to uninstall the package and reinstall to clean the corruption.

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2002-09-03 16:56:13 UTC
I had never run this application before nor had I touched any files related to
BIND.  It somehow came in my custom install of Null.  When I discovered that it
failed to run, I upgraded it to this version from Rawhide which had the same

I just now tested uninstalling the package and re-installing
redhat-config-bind-1.8.1-17.  Still crashes with the above error.

Also tested re-installing all bind related packages.  No change.

/etc/alchemist/switchboard/dns.switchboard.adl is the file that is causing the
problem.  Could you send it to me?
