If you could send me the LOGFILE of your DeleGate, including the
debugging information of DNS resolver enabled with "RES_DEBUG=-1" option,
it will be helpful to locate and fix the problem.

As listed in the incompatibility list in README.7-8, name resolvers
to be used by DeleGate is changed from 8.X.  This change was mainly
for Win32.  You might be able to escape your problem by using "sys"
resolver (resolver which is provided by the system).  Try the RESOLV
parameter which was the default in "old)" version.
