Hi All,

I have a very strange problem running MapiClient on a RedHat system at the UVA 
which is not a bug I think. Problem is the gethostbyname() call within Mapi 
is not working. The Mserver started without problems but when I try to run 
bash-3.1$ MapiClient -lx
MAPI  = monetdb at localhost:50000
ACTION= mapi_reconnect
ERROR = gethostbyname failed

/proc/version says:
Linux version 2.6.20-1.2925.fc6 (brewbuilder at hs20-bc2-3.build.redhat.com) (gcc 
version 4.1.1 20070105 (Red Hat 4.1.1-51)) #1 SMP Sat Mar 10 18:20:58 EST 

I have had a lot of other problems with this system like bootstrap complaining 
the filesys refcounts are not correct or the problem that after installation 
of MonetDB all file mask bits (rwx) of group-other (go) are ---,

Anybody any idea what could cause the gethostbyname() problem here???
