One of these periods of timeouts was lucky enough to happen during the day,
so I could have a look at it. I did a dig on www.google.com using the IP
powerdns is running on, and it timed out. I did another one using the IP
that bind is running on and it worked. Very odd! 

I don't believe I'm running the most recent version though, and the past
couple seem to have some bugfixes/imporvements with regards to recursion, so
I'll see if an upgrade has any effect.
