Some other possibilites:
- nscd issues?

I did think of that one, and did "nscd -i hosts" - however, ping will
also use nscd, and that works.

- Maybe wget handles ipv4/v6 stupidly? Try wget -4.

Ah, forgot about that one. Yes! that was it.

Well, it seems to be something happening between wget and nscd.
Without '-4', I see wget talk to nscd via /var/run/nscd/socket after
which it says "Resolving ... failed: Name or service not known.".

Somehow nscd has a cache-entry that always says "not found". I've tried
with "nscd -i hosts", but it doesn't seem to do anything. When I run
wget with -4, it also talks to nscd, but obviously gets a better
answer. It seems pretty clear that nscd is the culprit here. I'll
just restart it, trying to identify the actual problem is probably
