Deadwood update

Earlier this month, Deadwood was unable to resolve (Deadwood's recursion problems always seem to be caused by either Yahoo or EasyDNS).

Yahoo has since fixed things on their end. Since I recorded the DNS packets when Deadwood had the issue, I was able to make a SQA test to reproduce it.

Once I did that, it took me over an hour to find the problem and make a one-line patch to fix it.

It can be downloaded here:
I plan to work on MaraDNS/Deadwood again one day next month, after the 20th, unless a critical security bug is found.
