It kinda sounds like something is wrong with DNS lookup --- not on your
box as a whole, but just in your program.  Perhaps you are linking
against a broken resolver library, or some such?  Anyway, try putting
some debug printouts around the call to gethostbyname() in fe-connect.c;
I assume that must be the subroutine that's failing.  Find out what it's
being passed and what it's returning.
