It is a real issue that many people have reported. All causes we've found of
this happening are fixed in snapshot http://svn.powerdns.com/snapshots/949/

However, the RPM in that snapshot has been reported to crash immediately for
some people - even before answering a single packet. If that happens, try to
compile from the tar.gz. in the snapshot.
