DNS is updated before each account is fully copied over!

    When copying accounts between servers, the clustered DNS is updated with the new zone files before the transfer is completed (using homedir streaming).

    This causes some visitors to arrive at the half-copied account on the new server, which isn't a good thing to have happen (e.g. broken web apps/sites), and can be a security issue in some cases (e.g. password protected directories not yet being protected, etc).

    Shouldn't the DNS be updated only after the entire account has been copied over?
