[SURBL-Discuss] Problem with rbldnsd on Linux

I'm having issues running rbldnsd (rbldnsd-0.996) on Linux.
Tried two different varients (SUSE 10.0 & RH 4 AS) and both
lock up if I use the '-f' option, no problem with '-f' when
running on HP-UX.

The problem occurs during a zone data reload, the parent forks
off a child to answer requests while it reloads (what the -f does)
then when it's done and tries to reap the child it goes into
a spin-loop.

Anybody else seen this, know of a solution other than the workaround
of not using the '-f' option?
