Let's get straight to it:

1) 	Have a little respect.
2)	Don't cross-post excessively.
3)	Don't obfuscate hostnames in bug reports.
4)	Define "offline"; I get nothing like the behaviour that you are
	describing from a downed host, nor from a non-existent host:

	$ ssh quinch
	ssh: connect to host quinch.private.submonkey.net port 22: Operation timed out
	$ ssh sdfsdfs
	ssh: sdfsdfs: No address associated with hostname
5)	Come on, can't you spell check your mail before sending it?
