I've been experimenting with .bit names recently and noticed, that some of
are not resolved correctly by the opennic servers.

take, for example, vml.bit (a random, old domain):

"name" : "d/vml",
"value" :

"{\"ip\":\"\",\"map\":{\"*\":\"\"},\"email\":\"namecoin AT\"}",
"txid" :
"address" : "NKqzXvXxbcHGasgw43kCfUNwW9oz9nXmHT",
"expires_in" : 11523

but the opennic servers does not seem to know anything about it. I've tested
with these servers:


Another non-opennic namecoin bridges resolve the name just fine (for example

I've noticed, that a lot of these domains have the address in
common, many others have I can accept, that the private range does
not resolve (although it's arguable if it's a good practice), but the seems to be a bug.

Could you please, explain this behaviuor, and possibly issue a fix, if it
is a bug?
