Description of problem:
As firstboot starts a Traceback message is produced, a short explination tells
the this is in the time_date component.

Traceback below.

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install phoebe and run first boot
2. or
3. redhat-config-date
    

Actual Results:  Traceback from firstboot

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/firstbootWindow.py", line 153, in __init__
    vbox, eventbox = module.launch()
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/date.py", line 75, in launch
    self.setupScreen()
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/date.py", line 64, in setupScreen
    self.datePage = date_gui.datePage(self.dateBackend)
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/date_gui.py", line 171, in __init__
    ntpServer = socket.gethostbyaddr(ntpServerIP)[0]
TypeError: gethostbyaddr() argument 1 must be string, not None
