Bug description:  gethostbyname() fails

When trying to resolv the ip address of a hostname given in /etc/hosts, 
gethostbyname() works fine. It does NOT work when trying to resolv an ip address which 
must be looked up via the DNS server though. In the latter case, 
gethostbyname($hostname) always returns $hostname, i.e. it
behaves like the hostname does not exist. However, doing a command line nslookup, the 
hostname is found, so it DOES exist.

The problem occurs with version 4.0.4pl1 (compiled on the target system) as well as 
with version 4.0.1pl2 that comes with RedHat 7.0. I'm using kernel version 2.2.16 and 
a vanilla (i.e. non-updated) RedHat 7.0.

Thanks in advance...
