Thanks Jon.

I am running SuSE 7.2 Pro
My /etc/hosts file looks somewhat different than yours and somewhat different
than I am used to. It uses IPv6:

# special IPv6 addresses


127.0.0.1 localhost
192.168.1.3 CR792449-A.slnt1.on.wave.home.com CR792449-A
::1 localhost ipv6-localhost ipv6-loopback
fe00::0 ipv6-localnet
ff00::0 ipv6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ipv6-allnodes
ff02::2 ipv6-allrouters
ff02::3 ipv6-allhosts
