[nsd-users] memory leak in 4.0.x

My problem with reloading zones (mentioned here on Feb 17, 2014) is caused
by a bug in the linux kernel concerning forking. NSD's model of reloading
really tickles this bug:

basically, forks take longer and longer and longer while slabs grow without
bound until the inevitable.

Andreas: are you running linux?

I see no status on the patch mentioned in that thread, but we definitely
have to periodically reload NSD until this issue is addressed.
