This looks like an unrelated bug. I'd normally tell you to try using the
snapshot, but earlier today it was reported that the binaries on
http://svn.powerdns.com/snapshots/959/ crashed on startup.

It may work for you however.

For such vast volumes of reverse zones, a specialised pipe backend might
make sense, as you are now storing heaps and heaps and heaps of
'' strings which use up a lot of memory.
