Re: Bug: funny network problem

Forgot to add that I'm using using `unstable' repos.

Another observation:
Using ping  adding an http:// in front of the address produces an "unknown

This is not a problem. http:// is the protocol section of the URI and
is not part of the hostname. It is only used to indicate to a browser
that it should use HTTP. ping only uses the hostname, not the rest of
the URI. This is behaving as it should.
