I can not repoduce this.  I have no entries in /etc/hosts and added a
few for testing.  In my case getent hosts/ahosts always returns 0 if
an entry in /etc/hosts is chosen.  There's also no good reason that
this would change.  Getent hasn't been updated for quite some time and
there's no change in that area in Cygwin.
