Deadwood update: I have found some bugs

Just letting you all know that I have, from a single day of casual web surfing, found a number of host names that don’t resolve correctly with Deadwood 2.6.04. I will be working on fixing those this week.

There is no need to send me bug reports about Deadwood 2.6.04. I am already aware of its bugs.

I should probably note that Deadwood has much more solid code that MaraDNS 1.0’s recursive resolver did at this point back in 2001; the bugs I’m seeing are SERVER FAILs and hostnames resolving incorrectly. The bugs MaraDNS 1.0 had during this phase of development (good enough to start using on the real internet for recursive resolution) caused crashes.
