Really what this means is that we need to fix unbound in buster before we
can resurrect support in stretch.
I have read the history of the two bugs and at this point I would suggest
to create a package of the latest 1.9.x and ask the tester in #962459
if that versions fixes the issue, since we have not managed to cherry-pick
a working set of commits.
Then depending on the result, work with the release team to release
that version in buster (or possibly 1.10 if really the last 1.9.x doesn't
work reliably either).
