Oh it's definitely there, and running, too. Just verified both.
KB935966 only applies and is listed if you have the DNS component installed (C:\WINDOWS\system32\dns.exe exists)

Ok, did all that. (And thanks for the testing here)
run the installer manually to get your system patched, thats the most important thing right now, don't be afraid, if it didn't apply to your system it would refuse to install. likewise you don't need to be afraid about installing an old update, it'll only replace existing files that are older than the ones it has.
the only thing you need to worry about is uninstalling patches, which is something i don't recommend! see here for why!
it won't be showing up because your system isn't matching the requirements for some reason...
the only requirements for this module are that: 1) system is English, 2) it's 2K3_SP1_X86 or 2K3_SP2_X86 and 3) system32:\dns.exe exists
'system32:' should be pointing to %system32%. lets try to test that...
1) grab the attached file (right click and save), rename the .txt extension to .apm
2) stick it in C:\Program Files\AutoPatcher\modules\
3) temporarily move all *.rti files in C:\Program Files\AutoPatcher\ elsewhere to speed up autopatcher's load time (will skip integrity checks)
4) run autopatcher, allow it to "install" the test module
5) open C:\autopatcher_testdir.txt and see what it contains, it should report that system32: points to C:\WINDOWS\System32. if it doesn't then we may have a bug in autopatcher.exe, if it is, you need to check that dns.exe exists where it's supposed to

Ok, let me first state that after running the patch manually on one of my servers (which seemed successful), and rebooting, it STILL did not appear in the Autopatcher listing. All patches there are blue (with one exception...for outlook express...which either doesn't want ot install, or isn't detecting it...but I'm not concerned with that right now). But 935966 does not appear...even though it's been installed manually.
are you absolutely sure KB935966 does not appear in the critical section f the selection window
if so, try this test module, i just want to see if it appears in the selection window. if it doesn't, delete the following two lines, save, and try againComponentFile=system32:\dns.exe ComponentVersion=ANY
don't forget to rename .txt to .apm!

what about if you just simply add the first of those two lines back in, does it work then?
i'm probably going to have to report it as a bug to raptor
update: email sent to raptor about it.
please can you confirm the version number of autopatcher.exe
