Hi All,
I have noticed in our W2k3 SBS Error Logs the following types of errors,
starting at 2024 (local) last night.  Just thought I'd post this here in
case it is a m0n0wall bug - never seen these errors before.  I am
running 1.1b17 on a net4501 if that helps, and 1.1b17 has been running
since within about 24h of it being released.


	DNS Log:
	Event ID: 5510

	The DNS server encountered a bad packet from
Packet processing leads beyond packet length. The event data contains
the DNS packet.

	some more info

more information...

This event indicates that after sending a recursive query on behalf of a
client, DNS received a response with a fragmented flag set indicating
that the answer did not fit in one packet and that there is more data to
follow. See Q198757 and Q199792 for help in troubleshooting this
