Sure it does. ping <hostname> resolves address via DNS. Which is why I'm more 
thinking of bogus HTTP_PROXY (which fetch(1) would show) or an ISP forced 
transparent proxy which uses a stale DNS record. 15 days ago the website 
outage and sparked a load of me too mails on this list. I haven't checked if 
DNS was updated at the time, but it makes sense.
