The name resolution code in Coda-6.0 underwent a bit of a rewrite and it
has been taking a while to get some obscure bugs resolved.

f.i. Some versions of glibc won't resolve correctly if when res_init
wasn't called unless the nameserver cache daemon (nscd) is running.
Also in an attempt to always force FQDN realm name resolution, we used
to append a '.' to the name. This broke lookups in /etc/hosts. (and once
all of that got fixed by the time 6.0.4 was released an inverted test
broke lookups by IP-address, sigh)

In any case, strace clog and see what it tries to do. If it doesn't send
packets to UDP port 53, you might have to run nscd.

		       ^ that's not a FQDN.
