The "world" may not be correct.  I don't know what the right handling is
for those things.  But consider this: 

% dig twinlark.arctic.org.
success
% dig twinlark.arctic.org..
success
% dig twinlark.arctic.org...
failure

I've no idea why.  But I trust dig more than I trust other DNS programs.

% nslookup twinlark.arctic.org...
success
% nslookup twinlark.arctic.org....
failure

This is with bind-8.1.1 tools and server. 

All I know for certain is that a single trailing . has meaning and should
be stripped, and that's what the code does now.
