I manually add two entries to my /etc/hosts file:   localhost.localdomain   localhost   devbak.freeler.nl   devbak

Then I start netcfg, view my hosts and suddenly I see the second entry
twice! The first entry has disappeared altogether... When I click the save
button these entries are saved to my /etc/hosts file. Please fix ;-)
