I've an update to most of this that I'll send out in a moment.  I moved to
the gpgsql backend last night, as I'm much more comfortable with PostgreSQL
anyhow -- I only chose MySQL before because of the frontends.  I'm in the
midst of writing a perl script as my own frontend, so this is no longer a
big concern.  With both the PostgreSQL and the MySQL backends in place,
gpgsql behaves as expected, and MySQL is still behaving rather erratically.

Could a mysql version mismatch between the pdns server and the SQL server
cause this?

I may be having some problems, but I don't see any *gmysql* files on my
drive...  I think it's because the FreeBSD doesn't set any dynamic modules.
