No it isn't -- it was root because I didn't start it from init.d. I
changed the line in the init script that set the pid directory
permissions from 776 to 777, and init.d/bind9 will start it. But the
group is 'powerdev'
Never mind. /etc/group was bent. It was putting user bind into group
powerdev instead of bind...
