[Pdns-users] Pdns-Recursor / socket-* options

Hi all,

does anybody manage to use the socket-* options from pdns-recursor ?
I tried to use them to get the control socket being owned by a specified user/group (in order to get rec_control used by users from the group). But none of socket-owner, socket-group, or socket-mode options defined in my conf seems to be taken (the control socket always seems to be owned by root).

A small trick in the init.d script just after the daemon starting does the job, but I find it not very pretty.
I took a look at the source code and didn't find any use of the parameter.

Am I wrong in the understanding of these options or is this a bug ?
