Since I started my wireless network, I am getting odd delays when starting
apps that I am told is the resolver.  With the wired network, this does not

I've had ssh take longer than normal, I've had X take 3 minutes, and today
Xemacs didn't start so I shut it down and rebooted without the network.  It
came right up.

In all of these cases, xauth is running and stuck in the kqueue read state.

I HAVE the host listed in /etc/hosts:

::1                     localhost               localhost                neptune

Of course, '' is not a registered domain name.

What can I do to reduce or eliminate this annoying delay?
