The problem occurs with making ssh-connections. According to strace it tries to do a reverse lookup of the host I connection too. That host is a dialup which I cannot be reverse-resolved (which is weird - but despite this all worked fine with edgy..)

When changing the file to hosts: files dns it works.

It seems to me, that DNS just says "no I don't know this host" instead of letting a timeout pass .. mh .. basicially ubuntu now behaves as windows networking when opening explorer and it's looking for files ;-)

I'm beginning to understand the problem .. Perhaps that is a conceptual problem of zeroconf-things?

Perhaps an enduser-option for disabling avahi would do? But that's ugly..

Any other ideas ?
