[tor-talk] unbound, ttdnsd and DNSPort config

After trying to configure unbound and ttdnsd for transparent DNS
resolution through Tor, there are a couple of things I can't seem to get
working. Perhaps someone on the list can provide a hint?

I'm trying to set up unbound (running on to use DNSPort
( and then ttdnsd ( as a fallback.

Here's a snip from the unbound.conf:

 	name: "."
 	forward-addr: at 8853

Used individually, the addr directives work fine and resolve using their
respective mechanism. Used together, it looks like ttdnsd never gets a
chance after tor has failed (e.g. when resolving a SRV or MX record).

Any ideas?
