Hi David,

I'm going to go with Mark's answer: "nameservers that don't set TC
[truncated bit] when they can't fit glue are broken RFC 1034." When
that happens to be both TLD servers for a particular TLD (.gov), I'm
calling that an operational issue.

I have a workaround. I'm happy. But the folks running
*really* ought to have a discussion with their vendor.
