I don't even know what I use (and I suspect that many Unix users are
in the same case, completely lost by the lack of stability of GUI
interfaces). I installed an Ubuntu beta (because the laptop does not
work with stable versions) and I got something which, I believe, is
Gnome Shell.

So it works:

%  dnssec-trigger-control status
at 2011-09-20 10:01:09
cache error no RRSIGs in reply
cache OK 
state: cache secure

[The error is is indeed a problem on our side, confirmed
with dig.]

And tcpdump shows that is used, even if unbound.conf is
not modified. [Any way to dump the live configuration of Unbound, by
the way?]

Works OK.

I'm going to test on more hotspots now.
