Slow DNS and reloading

I just tried `ctlinnd reload incoming.conf` and it just sat there.  I 
thought innd had crashed at first, but it hadn't.  It just wasn't 

Attaching with gdb I realized that it was waiting for some DNS lookups to
timeout.  (I guess I should prune my incoming.conf, eh?)  A couple minutes
later everything returned to normal.

It's probably not worth doing anything about this, but it was 
disconcerting enough that I thought I'd mention it.
