[Pdns-users] pdns_recursor has issues resolving after running for a while

Hi, all.

I logged onto my IRC server which also happens to run a DNS server on it, 
which is also that machine's primary nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf, only 
to find that I couldn't oper.  Turns out forward DNS for my host's machine 
name was not working correctly.  I killed pdns_recursor then restarted it 
when I found I couldn't resolve from it, then things work properly.  I did 
not cycle the main server on there, however.

Another thing to bear in mind is that the nameserver on that machine 
authoritatively answers for that domain as well.

Any debugging suggestions should this arise again?

I'm running PowerDNS 2.9.10 under Debian Woody built with Debian's 2.95.4.

Thanks in advance.
