libmysqlclient15off - no /etc/hosts name resolution?
I noticed that specifying hostnames in /etc/hosts doesn't work with libmysqlclient15off on etch.
If I put hostnames/ip addresses in /etc/hosts and then use those hostnames in config files of tools that use libmysqlclient15off, connections fail. If I put IP address in those config files, everything goes well.
Is this a bug?
