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?
