Answer to an annoying "can't recv" error

For the last day or so I've been plagued by "can't recv" on some Linux
client machines whose hostnames I changed.  Apparently I forgot to
update their /etc/hosts files, and I had "files" before "dns" in
/etc/nsswitch.conf.   Oops!

Incidentally, it was failing on my Solaris machines too, but it doesn't
print any error.


p.s.  All of the above are v. 1.5.4
