running the DNSSD.register 'block' example fails on linux with

Removing the call to DNSSD.register 'block' resolves this issue. Registering the service at the end of the file works fine, as well as the registration with no callback.

This isn't a problem for my use case (literally just trying to advertise a service's availability for now), but figured I'd report it anyway.

Again, I can help with whatever you need to help get more info on this if it's worthwhile to you. Otherwise, this is just another data point for yon internet wanderers.
