I had very weird problem with MacBook Pro and Ubuntu 9.10. When DNS resolving was in progress, everything else was frozen. For example, I do 'ping news.google.com' in one terminal, everything looks good, then I go and do 'ping linux.org.ru', and while DNS lookup is in progress, ping in the first terminal just stops. I thought that this bug is somehow related and updated my hosts entry in nsswitch.conf to this one - "hosts: files dns". This solved the problem.
