I had another thought about this and I believe you are right.

I noticed that fetchmail got slow, but I didn't associate this with smail.
But xconsole shows, that during fetchmail my local caching only nameserver
learns hostnames.

So despite turning of this feature, smail *does* check the DNS. I'll have
another look at this and will probably file a bugreport.

BTW: which package has libpcap ? This one is missing in tcpdump's "Depends:"
line. Another bugreport I guess.
