Bug Description

Binary package hint: djbdns

With DNSSEC just around the corner its possible that we will start to see more dns requests starting to be larger than the 512bytes supported by dnscache. The problem can be described here

We have several customers which are already requesting large dns entries and in each case djb fails to provide the right results often truncating the end result.
