Yes, from the other ISPs, dig @their.servers and dig @my.own.servers works 
fine. On SAIX, dig @anybody.server only gives me a timeout.

The box uses ipfw in a stateful setup, but even with that comletely out of 
the way, there's no difference.

/etc/resolv.conf is static, but the address in there is correct.
