slave-cycle-interval doesn't change the time at which a notify is
sent. I set it to 5 and the notify still takes about 3 minutes to

It's strange because the code reads like that should work.

I tried this with pdns_control... but pdns_control seems to alter my
serial numbers. Is there any way to send a notify without it or
control the serial numbers it uses?

And I'd really prefer to have it updated automatically.

Note I'm using the postgresql backend.
