Can't say I've seen this.  I ignored unbound for a long time, until
posts on another list convinced me it had some benefit.  So I started
using it on builds from last October.  Since then I have from time
to time used older systems (multiple machines), either to do
different things in the early months (I mostly only update one at a
time), or to build a new system, or to update a few things on older

No problems apart from one occasion where I had to reboot my virgin
hub and the tivo into which it is plugged (not uncommon, happens a
few times a year).

Are you using your provider's DNS with unbound ?  If so, maybe
either *add* google or replace what is there now with google.  I do
recall one other occasion where google's DNS was down for a little

In my seventh decade astride this planet, and as my own cells degrade,
there are some things I cannot do now: skydiving, marathon running,
calculus. I couldn't do them in my 20s either, so no big loss.
