webmin administration of zone files will break in year 2038
...slaves will stop reloading.

webmin makes the mistake of using the UNIX system clock
time for serial number.

using an automatic zone generator which uses a special
increment counting 1 every 4 seconds would stretch it to
year 2262.

    There is actually an option on the Module Config page to use a date-based
    serial number, which will avoid this problem.
    Of course, by 2038 I would hope that the Unix close has increased to 64
    bits!
