And now it's working again:
[monster:~]% dig @127.0.0.1 nanog.org mx
; <<>> DiG 9.4.2 <<>> @127.0.0.1 nanog.org mx
; (1 server found)

Arrgh. So, perhaps I should rephrase the question. Since I appear to
have intermittent periods during which MX queries are timing out for
no apparent reason, what instrumentation can I usefully put in place
to try and figure out what is going on? I could easily trigger data
collection from a process watching the exim log for lookup failures,
for example, but I don't really know what to collect.
