   You must not have heard; the error was a popup window from Firefox.
"host" (or I suppose nslookup) could get the IP addresses, but for some
reason Firefox would pop up an error, quickly, and be the problem.  It
doesn't look like any of the 'real' DNS stuff was ever a problem.

    Network problem?  No, this problem went away when I messed with
nscd, I don't think there was ever a network problem or DNS problem...
