Right oh.  That works.

peter@joule:~$ cat /etc/hosts | grep	joule.invalid 	joule
peter@joule:~$ host joule
joule has address
peter@joule:~$ host joule.invalid
joule.invalid has address

But until about a month back that was unnecessary.
"host joule" would report the address which DHCP 
had assigned to the interface connected to the ISP.
Is this a new normal behaviour?  Is something broken?

In case anyone is interested.
A diagram is cited there.
