Dick, i think the issue here is that MS returns all the local
interfaces IP addresses and we're not doing that.

+The code is asking for a DNS lookup. DNS.GetHostName() returns a
+DNS.GetHostByName() returns as many results as are returned by the DNS
+query. Nothing in the documentation states that if the hostname is
+the local machine, to iterate the interfaces too.
+Hence my assertion that this is a configuration problem. Does Paco's
+windows machine have multiple A entries in the DNS database? (Bearing
+in mind that they might have been added automatically by a DHCP server.)
+And I still think the loopback address is being printed because on the
+linux machine DNS.GetHostName() is returning "localhost".
