(Yes, it's me again)

While testing key rollovers, I've noticed the auditor is not completely
happy with the output zone.

The current status is:

- In the process of retiring a KSK due to rollover

- The DNSKEY RRset has double signature with KSK 38055 and KSK 64098

Auditor complains with the following:

/usr/local/opendnssec/bin/ods-auditor -z pgp.net.nz
Auditor started
Auditor starting on pgp.net.nz
6: SOA differs : from 2920459816 to 30
6: Auditing pgp.net.nz zone : NSEC SIGNED
3: RRSet (pgp.net.nz, RRSIG) failed verification : No RRSet to verify,
tag = 38055
6: Finished auditing pgp.net.nz zone
Auditor found errors - check log for details

My understanding is the auditor is trying to verify the RRSIG, but I
might be wrong.

The zone validates using ldns-verify-zone 1.6.4 and named-checkzone, may
be it's a policy issue?

I've saved the files if needed for forensics.

I have the same issue with another zone in the same state. Additionally,
once the rollover is completed (the KSK being retired is removed from
the zone) the auditor is happy again.
