holiday? egypt? :) 

ok, attached is the file with two new functions: my_gethostbyname2() and
my_freehe(). First should be used everywhere instead of gethostbyname(),
and the later should be called to free up  all the used memory. 

I deliberately didn't send a patch, since I haven't CO'ed yet, so patch
would fail with new version. I'm counting on you for incorporating it
into new tree. :)

With this, you can also keep the memcpy(mreq.imr_interaface, ...) since
it's working now :)
