Or maybe traffic patterns since having never done this before under
1.2.11 it just did.

How come sendmail sendmail defers mail in this case instead of just
delivering it as it does when dccm dies?  This is a major problem as it
effectively shuts down sendmail, but in away that's hard from network
monitoring software to detect...

I'm not convinced, I've tried building dccm linked with the BIND 9
library to no avail.

I'd love to, but that's not an option at the moment.
