Severity: important


Apologies if this is not the source of this bug but it's
the only place I see it.  This doesn't make a lot of sense.
I first encountered this problem on a buggy wireless at a cafe.
Now I'm having it at home.

I can't explain this:

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   scriptdolphin.com
Address: 64.22.103.163

I can call up the hostname in iceweasel just fine.

Now I can get it again in the command line, too, and everything seems 
fine again.  Great.

I get the same in an xterm. Not a gnome-terminal bug.

Also:

emilio@saturno:/tmp$ host scriptdolpin.com
Host scriptdolpin.com not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

Reassigning to general as I don't know where it should go. Definitely not a
gnome-terminal bug.

Yeah on the console too.  Is it a network-manager problem
maybe?  I use iwl3945 - it is definitely broken at Brendan's
Bakery on Mission in Santa Cruz - awesome sandwiches there.
Both the stock kernel and my own have that problem. But I
think it happened at home on the wire once.  MDNS problem?
iptables logs everything it blocks except windoze and it's
not logging anything blocked.  but i don't understand why
the browser works on the same names, does iceweasel keep a
dns cache?

at home if i use the stock debian kernel (2.6.26-17) there
is an arp loop on the wire interface asking who has 169.*
addrs.  i have been too lazy to figure out ip6tables so i
turned off ipv6 in my own kernel.

Er, check your spelling? That's not the same hostname.

It looks as though everything you pasted is working fine, under the reasonable
assumption that scriptdolphin.com is meant to exist, but scriptdolpin.com
is not. As such, I'm closing this bug; feel free to reopen it if you can
reproduce similar problems when using the same hostname consistently.
