RRs printed in the \#length hexadecimals format cause the problem that I
found.  Regardless if the type was known to NSD, it was the text
formatting in the parser that leaked.

If the problem is still there (after using patch?) then it maybe
possible to reproduce with (a smaller subset of) the zone?
