Allen Wittenauer helped to identify these issues:
Now some general bad news, not related to this patch:
Ran a few queries, but this one is a bit concerning:

It looks like it effectively fails when asked about a root zone, which is bad.
It's also kind of interesting in what it does and doesn't log. Probably should be configured to rotate logs based on size not date.
The real showstopper though: RegistryDNS basically eats a core. It is running with 100% cpu utilization with and without jsvc. On my laptop, this is triggering my fan.
