Interesting and yes, seems related.

replaced gethostbyname and getservbyname.

I have:

Jaspers-MacBook-Pro:etc jasper$ cat hosts
# Host Database
# localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
# when the system is booting.  Do not change this entry.
##    localhost    broadcasthost
::1             localhost
fe80::1%lo0    localhost

# My local aliases

Read this. So you suggest replacing localhost
with something-else
 So you hostname for is no longer localhost either, am I correct?
