Re: Bug#759329: libnet-dns-perl: lintian fails with "Too late to run INIT block"

Control: reassign -1 lintian 2.5.25
Control: retitle -1 lintian: Too late to run INIT block at /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl5/5.20/Net/DNS.pm line 209.
Control: severity -1 normal

Dear Lintian Hackers,

the following is likely not an issue with the checked package but with
lintian itself:

I saw it with the zsh package just uploaded to experimental, too:

% lintian /var/cache/pbuilder/result/zsh_5.0.5-dev-3-1_allonly.changes
Too late to run INIT block at /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl5/5.20/Net/DNS.pm line 209.

I'm reassigning to lintian hence. Even if the message comes from
Net::DNS, Net::DNS's recent disruptive changes IIRC may require some
changes to code using it to work properly with current versions of
Net::DNS. (Feel free to correct me if I got that wrong.)
