Perhaps I wasn't clear, but all the other applications can resolve "localhost" correctly. I can ping localhost, ssh to localhost, cvs client can connect to localhost, and all of them resolve to 127.0.0.1 just fine. If I read the past postings correctly, the person who reported this problem before also wrote the same thing. And I don't think this is "patching around the problem". This is just making things easier for everyone. I'm pretty sure "localhost" is expected to resolve to 127.0.0.1 everywhere, and thus changing the default from "localhost" to "127.0.0.1" is very unlikely to cause a problem. regards, -- Kohsuke Kawaguchi Sun Microsystems kohsuke.kawaguchi at sun.com
