Comment 31 for bug 417757

My results are a little different. At the moment I'm using a draytek router, and am indeed suffering slow resolution in all my apps. Running the snippet above:

for i in `cat /etc/resolv.conf | grep ^nameserver | cut -f2 -d' '`; do dig @$i www.microsoft.com AAAA; done

Is very quick though. I consistently have slow resolution when running updates, but the same command against archive.ubuntu.com is also very quick.

The router has something to do with it I'm sure, my router at home doesn't give me any trouble at all, but querying so directly like this is reproducibly fast, while querying indirectly through update-manager, is reproducibly slow.
