Oh!  I missed the correlation obviously.  :)

This is cool to see!

There have been at least a couple posts on the forum within the past
2-3 months claiming this. I'm not sure if the reported issue I saw was
actually that or not. and I'm not sure if it's a legit issue or not, I
figured maybe you ran across something. IIRC the reported problem was
DNS resolution stopped working and hitting Save on the DNS forwarder
page fixed it.  I haven't confirmed that happening.
