Hi again Peter,

	Here are my results of the installation I did tonight.

I grabbed the following files :


Compiled, built and installed pdns-server_3.4.1.

PowerDNS version now reports as the following :

Jan 30 01:55:06 PowerDNS Authoritative Server 3.4.1 (jenkins at autotest.powerdns.com) (C) 2001-2014 PowerDNS.COM BV
Jan 30 01:55:06 Using 32-bits mode. Built on 20150130004723 by root at host, gcc 4.8.2.

Now when I do a lookup from the host (dig @IPADDRESS google.com), I see this in the syslog :

Jan 30 01:54:40 host pdns_recursor[995]: 1 question answered from packet cache from
Jan 30 01:54:40 host pdns[23000]: Discarding untracked packet from recursor backend with id 24672. Conntrack table size=1

End result, same as before. :(

I will go looking for a version higher than 3.4.1 and try again.
