Description of problem:
With RH 8.0 our application gets a SEGV during reverse 
DNS lookup.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x40556c34 in __res_nquery () from /lib/libresolv.so.2

Might be related to bug #77467

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Any remote reverse dns lookup crashes the server process. 

Additional info:
This might be related to limited stack space (threads)
but extending the stack to 64k did not make a difference.
