Excellent. I'll work on getting that fix released ASAP. The change is 
simply to re-check the interface configuration just before installing a 
new set of upstream servers.

It doesn't affect the results of the test at all. If you want a dnsmasq 
binary with the same capabilities as standard, and assuming you're 
running Debian or Ubuntu, then you have all the bits needed to build 
packages which will have them

sudo apt-get build-dep dnsmasq

will pull in the tools needed, then

cd  dnsmasq-2.52; debian/rules binary

will build the dnsmasq and dnsmasq-base .debs.

No problem, thanks for you help.
