Yeppers; run strace.

Mine dies when it tries to do gethostname on the local machine, which
almost makes sense, since it is on a location on the network different
from its destination, and the DNS server is unreachable right now.

But then again, why is it not getting the localhost name from /etc/hosts?
I have named set up in forwarder mode, (order host, bind).
