To tell the truth, I'm not sure if it is FATAL or not.  I inserted the
"FATAL" message (and sleep() before next recv()) at DeleGate/7.2.0
when I noticed that DNS DeleGate falls into infinite loop on failure
return (-1) from recvfrom().  I found the situation on my Linux machine
(RedHat6.1 which is still working the name server of the DELEGATE.ORG
domain) but could not found the reason why recvfrom() rarely returns -1.
Although I could escape the infinite loop by making delay (by sleep(10))
before continuing to next recvfrom() at that time, the real cause of 
the problem is not studied yet.  Anyway no fatal aftereffect has been
found after I escaped the problem like above, so far.  But if it is
really fatal in your situation, I'll study it more in higher priority.
