Anything that does real (as opposed to just treating it as a tcp rpc service
to a real name server) name resolution service inside a decent firewall 
doesn't work. Its hard to blame anyone since DNS comprehensively predates 
early firewall technology.

There's a patch to make glibc stat the resolv.conf file, Ulrich may hate it
but it does seem to work for non nscd cases. Having nscd aware of the situation
would be even better - I take it dbus aware nscd is a no-go ?
