To add some resolution to this issue, this is clearly not unbound's 
fault. When this situation is triggered I cannot locally ping any of the 
IPv4 addresses on the machine, so clearly the communication to unbound 
as a DNS lookup or via unbound-control are going to fail. I'm at a loss 
as to explain why this happens :)
