 Then in that case it looks like the test code here is just doing a
 straight DNS lookup irrespective of what the interface is set to, and
 windows is setting the DNS info when the interface state changes.

 ok, seems like it's not a bug.

+We could handle the special case where the hostname passed to the 
+GetHostByName is the result of `gethostname'.
+If so, we could return all of the IPAddresses associated with the
+hostname, all of the interfaces on the system.  
+This will be highly unportable code though.
+Am just reopening to keep this issue around, our behavior is clearly
+correct;  but I can see why people will be using this API.
+The only portable thing we can do on Unix to find out the IP 
+address being used is to connect to a system; and then query the
+credentials to extract the ip address that the kernel used to
+connect (this is what FTP clients do when they send the PORT command)
