Package: general
Severity: important

Dear all,  I've found something that is most propbably a bug in Linux's resolv
system, when trying to open a specific page with Epiphany (but any other
browser will fail as well, please try out yourself). To reproduce, please visit
<http://www.deviantart.com/> and search for "SNES". On the first results page a
picture called "SNES World HD" should appear. Try to click this picture.  Your
browser will fail to resolv the hostname and even ping won't be able to:    $
ping KeR-.deviantart.com   ping: unknown host KeR-.deviantart.com   However,
nslookup returns the right IP address and this page even loads under both
Windows XP and Mac OS X:    $ nslookup KeR-.deviantart.com    Server:   Address:    Non-authoritative answer:
KeR-.deviantart.com   canonical name = www.deviantart.com.   Name:
www.deviantart.com   Address:  I believe this bug is caused by the
dash character in the domain name, but I don't have any further knowledge of
Linux's resolv system. As you are the experts, please point me to where I can
help to trace this bug.  Cheers, Fabian
