Nope, this is a test station within my LAN, there's no firewall on it.

I never touched those files, so I don't think there' re the problem.

Yes, and there's also a DNS server on the LAN.

No, the problem still occurs.

Well, I use FreeBSD-5.2.1-p1 and my login manager is gdm2.
But even if I start gnome from console (using .xinitrc), I get the same 
problem. Disabling esd in gnome control center make the problem disapear.
I have no log whatsover except what I said about 127.0.0.1:16001 which 
appeared when I set log_in_vain in rc.conf.

I do have these in my sysctl.conf, do you think this could cause problem:

security.bsd.see_other_uids=0
net.inet.tcp.blackhole=2
net.inet.udp.blackhole=1
net.inet.tcp.sendspace=65535
vfs.usermount=1
kern.randompid=2

Thanks.
