I have cygwin installed on a VMWare VM running Windows 7 on a Mac running OSX 10.6. I am unable to get name resolution to work with ssh. The command ssh X returns the error "ssh: could not resolve hostname X: Non-recoverable failure in name resolution." The command nslookup X returns a valid IP address. I found the link below, and several others that reference the problem, but no solution. Is there a solution to this problem?

I do not have this problem with machines running XP either on VMs or natively. I've created a partial workaround in my .bashrc file that creates variables containing the IP addresses of the names I need to resolve. This solution doesn't work with svn working copies if the repository has a dynamic address because the IP address of the repository at checkout will be coded in the .svn/entries file. If the IP address of the svn server changes I'm won't be able to perform svn operations.
