unbound 1.7.0 crashes

Could you get logs with verbosity 4?  I would like to see what sendto it
is, i.e. some address from config, auth-zone(?enabled), or from an A or
AAAA record in the recursor.  Also, that looks like that addr structure
is some sort of garbage, hence the ntop error.  So, the piece of code
preceding it is interesting and verbosity 4 would print that (and lots

I am guessing it isn't an A or AAAA from a internet somewhere, because
that code that picked up that information to create an address structure
didn't change in 1.7.0, and also, it works for Andreas, so that doesn't
seem to be the 'bits that upset inet_ntop'.  So, those bits must be
created somewhere else, i.e. new features in 1.7.0?  I.e. also perhaps
visible when asking for this person't config (dnssec-trigger that
modifies config with unbound-control too?).

Best regards, Wouter
