Problems resolving sites in browsers under KDE

         I tried your suggestion and so far so good.  I'm still seeing a 
small amount of dns lookup stacking (IE if one request hasn't completed the 
others are put on hold till it's done rather than doing parallel lookups) 
that's stalling a few requests, but otherwise my browsing problem seems to 
be solved overall.  I'd like to figure out how to drop my default dns 
timeout from 30 seconds to something like 7-10 seconds.  Reason I'm 
thinking that is because my network is fast enough that if I haven't gotten 
an answer back within 7-10 seconds, I'm certainly not going to get one 
within 30.  Now comes the fun of RTFM and figuring out if that's possible 
under freebsd. :D
