Clearing MASQ Entries

Does anyone know a way to clear all of the MASQ entries from the
kernal tables?

I run my nameserver behind a MASQ router which has a dial-up
connection. If the connection goes down and gets assigned a new
IP when it brings the link back up, my nameserver is
non-functional until the MASQ entry for the nameserver's UDP port
times out. TCP connections are fine as they just drop, but any
UDP connection is hosed. I need a way to tell the kernel to
delete all of the entries in the MASQ table in ip-up so that
things will work properly.
