An annoying problem: whenever I fire up xemacs, whether by itself or with `-q'
to make sure it's not doing anything odd, it has a painful side-effect. With
$DISPLAY set to `:0', it does a name lookup on 127.0.0.1, giving it
localhost.network.home (my local network's name), but then it goes and does a
lookup for `localhost.'.
None of the named.conf files or other bind pieces contain this anymore (they
did in the past), but still it insists. Other programs bringing something
onto the display, including Web browsers and the like, don't behave the same
Anyone ever bumped into this? Or dug into it? (As I am now... :) )
