I have this problem all the time, running Bay Networks Site Manager under 
NetBSD/sparc ... the solution?  Put the hostname of the display in 
/etc/hosts ... the reason?  Lame Sun C library that wants /etc/hosts or 
YP :-)  (I run YP, but not on the machines where I run Site Manager :-)

Hope that helps!
