To be clear, after the update on my systems, BIND still worked fine. 
It was only the interaction between RNDC and BIND that was a mess. A 
bit of editing restored functionality. In reality it was mostly just 
annoyance, but we do have automated scripts that rely heavily on rndc 
to kick named in various ways, and those all broke.
