Bind backend? I didn't even know it had one! :)
I haven't had any problems with the pipe-backend (mind you: not the
geodns backend) on our test structure. Granted it's under very limited
load (only about 40 unique IPs using it daily), but the only problem I
had was forgetting to turn off server-side caching. It's been running
for weeks non-stop with only minor corrections to my script and a load
average under 0.04 even when tested with 100 queries per second (running
on a fairly basic Xen VS).
I don't imply the problem's with you, but either they've fixed many
issues upstream, my setup doesn't step into the same problems yours did
(by sheer luck, apparently) or at least it just didn't step on them yet! :)

Just to be sure I understand this, does it mean "I'm personally not
gonna get involved with it, but if someone else wants to play and be
responsible for it, I'm ok" OR "answering for the DSA, we don't approve
of this happening in one of our machines"?
Again: this is a plain question without the tiniest bit of sarcasm or
flame-mongering. I really just want to know.

Cheers and thanks for the feedback!
