    Am I on glue, or is the command line whois (debian, ubuntu) no longer
    following the referral from the registry whois stub record out to the
    full registrar record?
    $ whois example.com
    The Registry database contains ONLY .COM, .NET, .EDU domains and
    [end of output]
    I'm used to the command line client then trying to pull the full record
    from the Registrar whois server in the case of com/net (and jobs I
    guess), but that seems to not be happening anymore.
    Did something change, possibly in anticipation of the coming switchover
    to thick whois for these registries?
