Comment (by JohnFHall):

 As the OP I realise that the bug I highlighted was indeed caused by the
 update to proxychains, but what I had forgotten was that I had previously
 (originally) commented out the proxy_dns entry, and I expect that the
 update re-wrote the proxychain.conf file, removing my edit.

 As roflOr is aware of the interworking problem due to nmap not handling
 proxychains proxy_dns, and the nmap publisher has their own provision for
 socks 4 usage, I don't think much would be gained by contacting
 dev at nmap.org.

 If any one else feels differently, please feel free to do so.

 My vote is to close this case... as I made a mistake !!
