i had the problem today (hardy 8.04 32 bit install), with all the updates installed...
so i believe there is still some problem

however I fixed it by using

gksu gedit /etc/hosts
and just adding the hostname in front of 127.0.0.1 (as mentioned earler)

is there a way that any configuration dump will help. the please mention it
don't ask for hosts file, i believe that is not the problem.

The problem occurred because i overwritten my /etc/hosts with someone else's hosts file (don't ask why!), so as i said the hosts file is just fine.
