[Dnsmasq-discuss] dnsmaq stops forwarding queries (part 2)

I seem to have the same problem as Holger Mauermann:
My resolv.conf contains just:
and my alternative resolv file (/etc/resolv.dnsmasq) defined in
# OpenDNS nameservers
On initial boot of the server no queries are forwarded to the opendns
servers: it's as if dnsmasq had never read resolv.dnsmasq Touch
resolv.dnsmasq, and everything immediately works correctly. After a
while (not sure of the period, seems to be variable but can be as little
as 30 minutes) dnsmasq again stops forwarding queries; touching the conf
file again immediately restores proper behaviour.
I am running Debian Sarge with the stable version of dnsmasq (2.22, so
quite old). Am running ntpdate, and times are correct. My dnsmasq.conf
dhcp-authoritative # I have gentoo clients...
The log files look just like Holger's..
Since I've only found the one other person reporting this problem I
guess this is something more to do with my setup than with dnsmasq, but
can't work out what. Any suggestions?
