From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; .NET CLR 1.0.3705)

Description of problem:
I recently re-did my hosts file (to include a bunch of ad-serving URL's 
remapped to but I retained the first line defining localhost, 
formatted (i thought) exactly like in the original. I've attached the complete 
exception text and my /etc/hosts.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make your /etc/hosts like mine
2. try to run the "internet config wizard"
