Bug description:  gethostbyname returns hostname instead of adress

The gethostbyname doesn't seem to work on some of the systems I use. The problem only 
occurs on some machines, others work fine. The problem only occurs on 4.0x, but not on 
3.0x on the same machine.
All machines use the same build of php4.

For example:
   echo (gethostbyname (""));


The bug? also affects functions like mysql_connect.
I am unable to connect to a sql server unless I replace the hostname with an ip adress.

I've traced the problem back to sockets.c, line 817:
a.s_addr = (int) (*(host_struct->h_addr_list[0]));

If I replace the code above with the equivalent code used in php3 the problem is 
memcpy (&a.s_addr, *(host_struct->h_addr_list), sizeof (a.s_addr));

If you need more information please let me know.
