Package: apt
Version: 0.3.19
Severity: normal

Recently this host (tsur4.tau.ac.il) is behind a NAT/firewall/proxy
(WinRoute Pro). the DNS server was changed to be the proxy, and everything
worked fine, except for apt-get which could not find the DNS names in the
URLs at /etc/apt/sources.list. The problem disappeared when I changed the
hostnames to numeric IPs.

The 'dns server' (and I use that term loosely) in WinRoute Pro is probably
considerably buggy.. I have reported a glibc bug in this area that causes
slow DNS lookups in some situations which may be worsening your problem.
