I added
options timeout:5 attempts:1 no-check-names
and it doesn't solve problems. I still can't use samba, mc, sudo.

Some programs like apache, postgresql, mysql doesn't have any problems
with dns - it's great :) But some programs doesn't want to run without
dns - sudo, samba, mc (and probably many, many other) - from my point
of view this is a big problem.
