Bug #5563: Fix bug in drb tests if hostname does not resolve to a local IP
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/5563#change-40446

Author: jeremyevans0 (Jeremy Evans)
Status: Closed
Priority: Normal
Assignee: seki (Masatoshi Seki)
Category: test
Target version: 
ruby -v: ruby 1.9.3p0 (2011-10-30 revision 33570) [i386-openbsd]
Backport: 


3 of the drb tests leave the hostname part of the druby URI empty instead of using localhost.  When a hostname is not provided, ruby uses the system hostname, which usually resolves to a local IP address, but not always.  This causes the tests to fail if the system hostname doesn't resolve to a local IP address. The tests also appear to hang, since the connection timeout is 100 seconds.

The attached patch fixes this case by using localhost as the hostname in the 3 tests that did not already do that, making them consistent with the other tests.
