What revision was this corrected in?  And are both the issues posted
corrected, or just the one smsisko posted?

I am able to run the test smsisko posted
(Dns.GetHostEntry("").HostName).  I am also able to do a
System.Net.WebClient.OpenRead(url) via a standalone console test app.  
However, when i run this same System.Net.WebClient.OpenRead(url) via
fastcgi-mono-server2, it fails with the DnsResolutionFailure still. 

Any thoughts?

I'm running on Gentoo's mono-2.4-r2 build.
