Hi

While running DRb, I noticed that a timeout was occuring with the URI
provided by DRb.uri. On my powerbook, DRb returned as the URI:

   druby://<computer_name>.local:port

Executing the first remote call within DRb took over a minute on
my powerbook, but was instantaneous on my sun box.

When I changed <computer_name> to <ip.ad.re.ss>, the delay
issue disappeared.

Thinking it may be a configuration issue, I fiddled with

  Socket.do_not_reverse_lookup = true

but did not had any luck.

This is disconcerting since I had hoped that DRb.uri would return a
good address.

Does anyone know what the problem is here?

Thanks
