Dear Robb,

I've see the issue and know of one other person having it.  It is really
(Open)BSD related, and I've not seen it elsewhere, even not on our other
FreeBSD machines (production and testing).  It seems content related,
perhaps you can share this.  Nearly all of the cases you can clear the
problem away by removing the files in /usr/local/var/lib/opendnssec/tmp
and /usr/local/var/lib/opendnssec/signer, which are all transient state
files, this should be done after stopping OpenDNSSEC and restarting
it afterwards.
If you are able to share your zone file that causes this problem,
including the state in the above mentioned directories, perhaps I can then
more targetfully approach the issue.
