I don't think so.  I think it's config file processing lossage; I get
the same errors with my Debian Linux setup but using the -h option
wins.  (This is not to say that it isn't at root a lookup problem,
quite possibly in glibc, but if one path to the lookup works and
another fails, there is definitely a bug in Coda.)

You might also check into gethostby*() vs. the Unix98 version,
getsomethingorothersomehow().  (Well, anyway, there is a new function
and recent GNU libc's deprecate the gethostby* interface.)
