Well spotted Rowland!

Yes, I've checked the code (the exact line number is in the backtrace)
and it is hard-coded to assume the new record will be in the
DomainDnsZones.  It should try ForestDnsZones if the first search


If you dare, you could try and patch the code yourself.

Sorry for all the drama here!
