Bug#609491: project: Nameserver or DNS

Package: project
Severity: important

I'm working with computers since 1990. I'm no expert. I'm working with 
Debian about 5 years.

My computer gets the ip-address from the router (dhcp). He gets the 
address of the nameserver from the router too. The ip-address of the 
nameserver is The file /etc/resolv.conf got the line 

The nameserver of my provider is slow. So I got an account on 
dyndns.com and use their DNS.

If I put the address of the nameserver from dyndns.com into the file 
resolv.conf (nameserver there will be every second and 
more a request to the nameserver (using the command "netstat -anp").
If I put the old address "" back into the file "resolv.conf"
requests to the nameserver went normal, means: requests will be done if 
a program really needs a new address for e.g. blaaa.blaa.bla.
I got the same behaviour if I put the address of the nameserver from my 
provider into resolv.conf "".

I guess this is really strange. I did never saw so much queries to a 
nameserver on my computer.

Hope, somebody will help!
