Bug Description

I noted a further and more severe problem with hostnames in the hosts files. This works nicely:

mkomu@bling:~/projects/hipl-bzr/hipl$ host crossroads.infrahip.net
crossroads.infrahip.net has address
crossroads.infrahip.net has IPv6 address 2001:1b:a9be:c6a6:34e5:8361:c07f:a990

..but then I get:

mkomu@bling:~/projects/hipl-bzr/hipl$ ssh -v crossroads.infrahip.net
OpenSSH_5.5p1 Debian-4ubuntu5, OpenSSL 0.9.8o 01 Jun 2010
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
debug1: Applying options for *
debug1: Connecting to crossroads.infrahip.net [] port 22.

Artturi, please have a look at the reported problems.

This bug may or may not be related to #681356.

Artturi noted that the bug is not about DNS proxy itself. I think Ubuntu Lucid and upwards handle this a bit differently in libc. At the moment, I have the following in my /etc/nsswitch.conf:

hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns4

I can make the problem go away by swapping the "files" and "dns" entities.
