Bug description:  gethostbyname with timeout

gethostbyname can appear to hang indefinitely; I assume that this happens
if the expected DNS responses are not forthcoming. Unfortunately if this
happens in a webpage it can cause a cache or browser timeout, losing the
entire page. A variant of this function with an optional timeout parameter
would solve this problem.
