:  errno isn't meaningful after a call to gethostbyname, you should look at
:  h_errno instead:


:        fprintf (stderr, "Could NOT get host by name (localhost): %d <%s>\n",

:  Would result in:
:     Could NOT get host by name (localhost): herrno: 1 <Unknown host>

``Could NOT get host by name (localhost): 1 <Unknown host>''

Yes, so it does.

:  I have no w95, only w98 SE.  Works for me:
:    $ ./tghbn
:    Could get a host by name (localhost)

No surprises there...

:  The difference between the snapshot and 1.5.18 is that we dropped

:	localhost

Any host. (That line is already in my hosts-file.)

I just tried it. It doesn't help.

Oh, I just found a build of September 15, and it shows the failure,
so the change should be somewhere between Sep 2 and then.

Also: Did you notice it works when invoked from strace or DOS command?

Could this have to do with env-vars?

Any other things I should try/report?
