I'll look at the trace more closely in a bit but would you mind getting 
the output of "lsof -n -p <pid of dnsdist>" while the issue is still 
happening? A full backtrace with gdb might also be good to have, you 
would first need to attach to the running process with 'gdb -p <pid of 
dnsdist' then issue the 'thread apply all bt full' command. You can then 
close gdb and let dnsdit running (or not).
