	inn 2.3.1 nnrpd can't resolve host names.  This is for a 
	machine that does have valid forward/reverse DNS entries
	(locally at least).

	$ host domain name pointer
	$ host has address

	Observed on an x86 (little endian) with ipv6 compiled into
	kernel.  htonl() problem???  I'm having trouble gdbing the
	nnrpd code.  Attaching to the running process occurs too late
	to observe the resolver failure.

	Read news, look at the log file.
