Well, don't be so quick. The problem is that I use global counter
that gets incremented after EVERY query. So e.g. when you have this
@ MX 10 a.example.com
@ MX 20 b.example.com
@ A 127.0.0.1
@ A 127.0.0.2
and are asking for ANY RR, you'll get this:
example.com. 2100 IN A 127.0.0.1
example.com. 2100 IN A 127.0.0.2
example.com. 2100 IN MX 20 b.example.com.
example.com. 2100 IN MX 10 a.example.com.
This is because the counter gets incremented twice, and as a result
rbldnsd will return the same result set a1ll the time. That's why
i called the "randomization" as "dumb". But at least, this is a
P.S. After mailman upgrade, From: field in this mailing list looks
somewhat differently... ;) Anyone know how to "fix" it back, to stop
mailman adding the comment?
