help with FC3 and Bugzilla Bug 161181 DNS truncation

My FC3 local caching DNS is placing the AUTHORITY section in the 
responses. I think this exceeds a certain size threshold and I get this :

# dig @
;; Truncated, retrying in TCP mode.

Even though the response has all the IPs listed, and no error in the 
Header, ping and firefox both puke, unable to resolve the IP address.

When I go directly to my ISP's dns, it is fine, I assume because there 
is no lengthy AUTHORITY section in their reply.

Could it be this bug exists on FC3 too? Any gut feeling of how long it 
will take for the fix to migrate out to user land?
