Ahhh, if I try and query using the IP address it works fine.  For

  drill cerberus.live.etc.gen.nz @2404:130:b1ff:1:0:2:1:53 

But if I use a hostname for the server to query, it dies with the
assertion error.

On my AMD64 at work drill dies with a Segmentation fault instead of an
assertion error.
