I haven't actually got ldbdump on the machine, and I can't see it in the 
Debian packages. That said, I do appear to be able to add DNS records 
now, so I'm assuming it was the index. If you particularly want me to 
find out then I'll try to get a dump, but as long as its working I'm 
happy to leave it be!
