Does "reboot" show the same problem If the system has been running for a while (at least 15 minutes or so)? Your broken link sounds like the expected behavior when you do a dirty reboot shortly after the link has been created (before the link contents have been written all the way to disk). But the broken /etc/namedb link shouldn't prevent named from restarting after the reboot; maybe we should change the named startup scripts to test this link and delete/recreate it if it's broken?
