Silly me. Just a side notice - libevent and libev doesn't play well
along. I glued evldns from Ray with libunbound and it stopped
segfaulting after I linked evldns with libev.

I'll add code handling secure and bogus and send it back to Ray for
inclusion in evldns. That way we could have a tiny validating resolver
on top of libunbound, which you can run if you want to have validation
on your computer and you don't want full featured unbound (I call it
stubound :)).
