[collectd] bind plugin failing

I'm having some trouble with the bind plugin, and I could use
some guidance in tracking down what the problem is. At the
moment, I'm just getting "read-function of plugin `bind' failed."
in the log, followed by various "Will suspend it for" times.

The plugin config:

<Plugin "bind">
  URL ""
  ParseTime       false
  OpCodes         true
  QTypes          true

  ServerStats     true
  ZoneMaintStats  true
  ResolverStats   false
  MemoryStats     true

I can do a `curl` and get a bunch of XML
output, so I think the BIND side of things is working.

I'm using collectd 5.4.1 on FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE with BIND 9.10.1.
