This seems to have cropped back up in the latest PowerDNS Auth.
release ( How to reproduce:

*.usenetbinaries.com. 7200 IN CNAME www.usenetbinaries.com.

[augie at augnix ~]$ dig +norecurse aaaa admin.usenetbinaries.com
@a.auth-ns.sonic.net +short



[augie at augnix ~]$ dig +norecurse a admin.usenetbinaries.com
@a.auth-ns.sonic.net +short

If you run a cacheing name server locally and the resolver routine
asks for a AAAA first you will cache the incorrect wild-card answer.
