Actually, that sounds like a completely different problem, unrelated to
name services. That sounds like IPv6 breakage.
Depending on the drivers involved, I remember there being various
hardware checksum offload bugs that can cause all sorts of
strange-looking problems. Some were IPv6-specific.
It might be worthwhile to try rebooting with this in /etc/system:
and, if you're using e1000g, this in /kernel/drv/e1000g.conf:
I don't trust hardware offload schemes any further than I can throw
them. For a minuscule bump in performance, they extract many hours and
days of wasted administrative effort.
