Package: wn
Version: 2.0.8-2
Severity: wishlist

Recently I have the chance to upgrade my home system to potato.  The machine
is in a local network with dialup on-demand and masquading (without local
DNS server).  After the upgrade, the dialup link started dialing whenever the
web server of the local network is accessed (by a machine in the local
network, even by itself).

After investigation, it turned out that the dialup link is triggered by wn
in the logging process.  It tries to do a reverse lookup on the address of
the client, which skip /etc/hosts and reach root DNS server right away.  This
is enabled by the CHECK_DNS_HOSTNAME flag at compile time, and there is no
way to stop it at run-time.

In the current state wn is completely unusable in my environment (I fetch the
source, recompile it and hold the version).  If accurate logging is really
that important, I'd rather see loss of a bit of efficiency and have one more
logging flag.
