pkg_info reports libevent-1.4.8

I will try that if things go south again.
Not sure if this is related to the problem
but after I restored the config as it was
when trying the server from home, things
apparently work again but I shall monitor
this for some more. I disabled the extended-
statistics and threading.

BTB, on the unbound.net site it says you can
tune unbound's memory usage. The machine I
have unbound running on is a quadcore xeon
with 8GByte of RAM. According to the comments
in the unbound.conf, is the following reasonable
and can unbound use that much?

msg-cache-size: 2G
rrset-cache-size: 4G
