yes thanks, besides that all generated files are owned by root and put
into the current working dir even if nsd.conf assume relative to the
conf file ie. next time nsd have to retransfer all files, what's more
nsd assume it already do the patch (nsdc: no patch necessary.) ie. no
data in ixfr.db even if wrote into wrong dir:-(
