} I was seeing that in my case, there were thousands of these every second,
} and it filled up my /var partition pretty quickly. Had to do a logging {
} category queries { null; }; }; 

That sounds like the widely disliked behavior of a previous version
of the patch.

`named -v` with the current version of the patch from
http://www.redbarn.org/dns/ratelimits should say something like
"BIND 9.8.3-vjs192.16-Px" or "BIND 9.9.1-vjs197.15-Px"

If the current version is still to noisy, then something more needs changing.
