I forgot to mention that when I had BIND 9 running using polling
(select()) I found that if you started running something like Windows
Media Player, named wuold go to 100% CPU. Once I rewrote it and
stopped using select() the problem went away. If something's
using a select() it may cause problems elsewhere. I could never
tell what was really causing the problem.
