I originally meant to reply to the whole list but got just Jeroen. Oh
well, win a few, lose a few.
I have a feeling that the "two-to-the-thirtieth gigasecond milestone"
event caused my problem. Basically, it said my copy was stale, yet
refused to do a zone transfer. As a result, one nameserver, Sakura was
pounding my other nameserver, Narshe, in excess of 500 times a SECOND,
revised from what I'd originally estimated and written to Jeroen. The
disk fillup on Sakura was definitely no exaggeration. (It was over half
empty on a good day, even with the loggage resulting from dictionary
hammering I routinely get from would-be spammers.)
I rebuilt PowerDNS with that patch as mentioned on the list and the
problem went away. Zone transferred and All Was Good with the World(R).

I got it substantially worse. I was getting SCORES AND SCORES of them
EVERY SECOND. Yesterday, it was so bad, it filled the drive on which
the system logs were stored. Broke a lot of things.
