[Unbound-users] unbound returning unvalidated responses briefly on startup?

Without any kind of python module, we are seeing unbound returning
unvalidated answers on startup briefly.

We can reproduce this using:

service unbound stop
service unbound start
dig +dnssec
dig +dnssec

The first dig will not have the AD bit set, but does return the answer.

Why does this happen? How can we prevent this from happening?
