I can read your note to say there is no memory-based cache for DNS in
jnos.  Yup - no write privilege would be a bad thing.
I am operating from the understanding that there is a memory based cache
with a time-out on look-ups.  HMMM - I could be wrong.
Do you experience flaws very often in domain.txt when update is ON?

Would you believe 1805 for a setting?  Something else *has* to be going

There were several simultaneous things during our convers net tonight.
The mi-drg network poll was one of them.
And I experienced no major flaws as in the past months - just slow.
So we are probably on an OK path with the changes so far.

OK - good idea.
You might want to wait until we have a chance to repair domain.txt and
segmentation too?
