Description of problem:

# avahi-browse -a -d .local
Browsing domain '.local' on any.0 ...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/avahi-browse", line 161, in ?
    browse_domain(avahi.IF_UNSPEC, avahi.PROTO_UNSPEC, domain)
  File "/usr/bin/avahi-browse", line 134, in browse_domain
    b = dbus.Interface(bus.get_object(avahi.DBUS_NAME,
server.ServiceTypeBrowserNew(interface, protocol, domain)),
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/dbus/", line 64, in __call__
    reply_message = self._connection.send_with_reply_and_block(message, timeout)
  File "dbus_bindings.pyx", line 395, in
dbus_bindings.DBusException: Invalid domain name

If this is a really an invalid domain name then a tool could simply say that
instead of throwing up a traceback.  Even better would be an information which
names are valid.
