Unable to lookup hostname or cfengine service

Hello All,

I am running into a rather odd error when executing cfrun that seems to indicate a hostname lookup failure or an entry missing from /etc/services.
The hostname is resolvable via dns and the resolver order on the machines are ordered: hosts, dns. Other programs that use the resolver libraries are able to resolve the name with no problems(short name or FQDN).
An entry for cfengine is in /etc/service associated with port 5308 tcp and udp.
This error only seems to occurs when using cfrun; it does not occur if cfagent or cfexed is used.  Regularly schedule runs also do not produce the problem.
The problem is occurring on Linux and Solaris alike.
I am running version 2.1.7p1 of cfengine on all platforms.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You.
