Description Stepan Kasal 1999-05-01 11:13:29 UTC
In nslookup with bind-8 DNS server, you may see:
  > ls > file123
  Received 250 answers (0 records).
while it's actually 150 answers and 100 records.
And, again in nslookup:
  > view file123
gives you an grep's error message and no record is shown;
  > finger NAME
works as if no parameter was given.

I'm going to mail you a single patch for all bugs,
mail me if something fails.  Cheers!

Comment 1 Stepan Kasal 1999-05-01 11:56:59 UTC
I've found another bug:
> ls -d domain > file1
> ls -d domain > file2
produces two different files, namely the second one does not contain
the character '@' naming the first SOA record.
I'll include a fix of this bug in my patch when I send it (in a
minute, i hope).

Comment 2 Stepan Kasal 1999-05-01 11:58:59 UTC
Well, I've run "diff file1 file2" from my last comment, and it
showed that $ORIGIN directive is missing too in file2.
I'll fix it too.

Fixed (by applying patch) in bind-8.2-7. Thanks for the patch.
