Apache triggers dial-in on startup

From Bugzilla Helper:
Description of problem:
When starting the httpd service, it always tries to resolve the local hostname
using a dns query, and therefore triggers an internet dial-in on my machine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. hangup internet connection (or fire up ethereal and watch packets)
2. /sbin/service/httpd restart
Actual Results: dns query -> dial-in
Expected Results: nothing
Ethereal shows two dns queries, trying to resolve the local hostname (as shown
by the 'hostname' command). This happens with the default apache configuration
and the hostname set in /etc/hosts. Setting the "ServerName" in httpd.conf made
no difference. Note that this didn't occur on RH 7.3.
This could be a resolver configuration issue: I can't reproduce this
on RHL9 if the server hostname is /etc/hosts.
