Alessandro, thanks for the report. Can you describe what "have problems"
means? Do you get a timeout? A servfail? What does 'dig www.catb.org
@your-pdns-ip' say when this happens?

When it does fail again, run 'killall -USR2 pdns_recursor', and retry, your
syslog will contain relevant --trace output.

If that doesn't work, see if you can startup using --trace in the first

Can I query your nameserver? I'll be sending queries from You
can let me know your IP address privately.

If you have --trace output when it fails, also send it.
