Deadwood update

Deadwood update

Earlier this month, Deadwood was unable to resolve es-us.noticias.yahoo.com (Deadwood's recursion problems always seem to be caused by either Yahoo or EasyDNS).

Yahoo has since fixed things on their end. Since I recorded the DNS packets when Deadwood had the issue, I was able to make a SQA test to reproduce it.

Once I did that, it took me over an hour to find the problem and make a one-line patch to fix it.

It can be downloaded here:

I plan to work on MaraDNS/Deadwood again one day next month, after the 20th, unless a critical security bug is found.
