After looking into the code and the diffs between 2.9.21 and the
snapshot I found the only difference
between the old and new in the manner in which the control-socket is
set-up in the server.

In 2.9.21 only the local unix socket existed and this was set-up.
In 2.9.22 both the local unix socket and a tcp/ip socket exist for which
a shared function
is create b the name 'createSocketAndBind'.

The problem seems to be that this function essentially does a bind() and
listen() after which the gid and mode
of the control-socket is changed.

Before it did a bind(), change gid/mode and listen().

I did a quick hack to change behaviour as it was in 2.9.21 and
pdns_control does everything I want it to.

At this time I'm getting a bit cloudy in my head ;-) so if I don't make
sense please forgive me.

If the hack I made is of interest to anyone please let me know and I'll
post a diff against snapshot 1293 to the list.
