Description of problem:
eggcups constantly calls gethostbyname("localhost") (or a function which results
in the same kind of lookup). This is on a machine which uses a remote printer.
The lookup happens about once ever 3-4 secs. This really shouldn't be
necessary. The IP address won't change.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start machine with Gnome desktop
2.add eggcups to panel
Actual Results: one host lookup every couple of seconds
Expected Results: One lookup at startup time
You can observe the lookup by running nscd in debug mode
make sure nscd isn't running already.
This particular bug was fixed in 0.1.10-7; the more general issue of needing to
poll at all is fixed properly in rawhide (requires dbus, new cups).
