Long ago, my workaround was posted to this list. You can still download
a script from ftp://yesican.chsoft.biz/pub/DNSmasqRebuildCache.sh
You'll see djbDNS programs, which admittedly slant my perspective <g>.
One of our servers runs djbDNS just to serve DNSMasq, supplementing a
handful of other DNS servers in the area - including one from our ISP.
DNSMasq sends about 10% of its forwards to our djbDNS server.
If Simon is offended, then so be it, but I mean no offense. I just fail
to see how a save to/restore from disk could bloat the code;
save/restore IS a basic feature. TTL will expire out any crap
