+------- Additional Comments From robertj at gmx.net  2006-08-30 18:32 -------
+The following test case works on my machines:
+using System;
+using System.Net;
+class T
+        static void Main ()
+        {
+                Console.WriteLine (Dns.GetHostByName
+        }
+It even works if I remove the "localhost" entries from /etc/hosts,
+as long a nameserver is still available. If neither /etc/hosts nor
+the nameserver are available, an exception is thrown.
+The same with, the stable release.
+Check your net config.
