2.8: Bind 8.2.2-P7 dies



Hello.

Has anyone experienced bind 8.2.2-P7 built from ports in
Release 2.8 to crash when receiving queries of type TXT/CHAOS ?

This is the last NS query I found in /var/log/daemon before
the nameserver died:

--snip--

Feb 25 20:44:56 ns2 named[18020]: XX /64.45.60.53/version.bind/TXT/CHAOS

--snip--

Maybe a script-kiddie tool out there to crash bind8 servers?

I am planning to switch to bind9, but I don't want to use 9.0.0
of ports_2_8. Is it recommended to compile bind 9.1.x out
of ports_current on a 2.8 system?

Maybe I'll have a look at DJ B's DNS, but for now I just don't want
some script-kiddie crashing my nameservers.

Thanks for any help.

-Kai.
