I think that the libs are the key to the problem.
I can't tell exactly (have only one libresolv.a on the machine),
but I will replace the networking tools and upgrade to BIND 8.
My identically configuered SuSE-Linux machine at home
(I copied all essentail files over for checking) does not have
the problem, I think reinstalling should help.
If it does, I'll post a short notice.
