Since the path is set to /etc/tinydns/root/, this command attempts to
write a file named /etc/tinydns/root/etc/tinydns/root/data.cdb.  Change
the destination arg to be just "tinydns/data.cdb" after the "::" and all
should be well.

The version in CVS properly outputs a warning to the user, so it looks
like that bug is fixed for the next version (though I can't find it
mentioned in the NEWS -- hmm).  There have also been some changes to
improve the mkstemp error (to make it contain the full path to the temp
file), but I note that it needs a little more improvement to handle
daemon mode -- I'll look into that.
