So if bind is turned off... then how is NetworkManager doing lookups? 

And why cant nscd be 'fixed' to do these?

Sorry I just dont like having a bind server on boxes that arent DNS
servers.. you deal with one BIND exploit and it taints you :). It also
seems to be heading towards everyone needing 1 gig of ram and a 3 ghz
dekstop to even run effectively.
