Yesterday I updated a zone (colah.ca) and bumped the serial and issued
a sign command (not using XFR adapters). None of my secondaries picked
it up a day later. I noticed the signed zone serial went from 2012011568
to 2012011517. This is a zone that has not seen any change in probably a
year. The git commit confirms I upgraded the serial:

There seems to be a bug in the incrementing serial routines for signed
