In the debug log, it seems like unbound receives the reply just fine,
and should be trying to do a send() call to send a reply to the user.

The tcpdump does not show any reply from unbound to a user.  Unbound
must be trying to send, and the syscall seems to work, or it would log
an error.  Is there some routing issue?  (try interface-automatic: yes?)
