Can confirm this affects me on Oneiric Beta 2. Host has working IPv4 and IPv6 network. All networks have working reverse DNS, but not all hosts have actual DNS entries (this is true of both IPv4 and IPv6).

Fix for me is to remove mdns4 from the nsswitch.conf.

"sudo /sbin/arp" takes a long time to look up hostnames. This makes facter take a long time to run (+1 minute longer than necessary). This in turn makes puppet take a substantially longer time to run (100+ seconds vs. 28 seconds).
