Angry system-config-bind-gui

Anyone have any luck setting up their DNS server with the GUI app that comes with Fedora? I have gone back to it from time to time to try to use it since Red Hat 9 first came out. It never seems to work correctly, so on my real DNS servers I hand edit the named.conf and create my own zone files.
Any tips would be appreciated. I am currently getting a message in /var/log/secure:

May 11 21:55:54 Gateway userhelper[31015]: running '/usr/sbin/system-config-bind-gui' with root privileges on behalf of 'root'

When I try to save my changes in the GUI editor it never writes anything to the file. I am only trying to do this on a local network server, so it will not effect several hundred domain names like on my real servers.

Ever use Webmin? It's got a really nice module for setting up bind and I believe it will actually write the files. Many people prefer this over any of those system-config tools.
