One more thing, I forgot to ask...

I don't suppose there is any way to prevent all of these hostname lookups
(since they are obviously sommething somewhat recent)?
For bash I can just tell ZoneAlarm to ignore it, and all is well, but
since applications like vim seem to be doing the same thing (and yes I
removed \h from my PS1 line, just to be sure), the whole point of
installing ssh (to get sshd working) has gone out the window since
anytime I run a program that uses hostname, ZoneAlarm will complain on my
local desktop, and my remote session will hang (Obviously, I could let
all outgoing programs access the internet freely, but preventing that is
half the reason I run ZoneAlarm in the first place)
