Bind "Inappropriate ioctl for device" error

I'm getting the following errors in my logs:

Jul  3 12:03:46 dns named-xfer[1200]: can't make tmpfile
(slave/genericdomain.com.ChB1Ca): Inappropriate ioctl for device 

Bind (8.3.3-2.0woody) has write access to the directory (I've deliberately
broken it to check and it spews a different error message).

I'm running 3.0r1 stable, fully patched up to date as far as I'm aware, and
have tried both 2.4.20 and 2.4.21 kernels.  All I've been able to find on
Google so far are references to a broken /dev/random in early versions of

Any ideas?
