Wouter, you're a hero!

I don't know what "regression tests" do in detail but at the end of the day
the patch apply clean and I could compile. But after activating  
"use-caps-for-id" again
unbound still fail to resolve PTR on  
*some* of my systems.

But these systems in question show other issues too.
We had a major update on our firewall. Allmost everything work but  
just now I could not resolve
some other hosts (again PTRs)

$ dig +short

$ dig -x +short

But on some systems I get SERVFAIL back. So I digged deeper and end up  
with this:

$ dig PTR +short +norecurse

OK, a CNAME ...

$ dig PTR +norecurse
;; Question section mismatch: got

But only on udp transport. On TCP transport that gets the right answer.

So I would not rise the hand "it works" right now. I like to figure  
out the error
(which I assume on my side) before saying finally "it works".
