Just curious, do you have ipv6 enabled in your kernel and working on
your Ethernet interface? It looks like you're only getting an ipv6
address returned by the resolver for nom.uct.ac.za. I did a lookup
myself and I got both an ipv4 and ipv6 address:

descartes:mproto/ $ host nom.uct.ac.za
nom.uct.ac.za has address
nom.uct.ac.za has IPv6 address 2001:4200:300:100:20e:cff:fe5c:f5c4

Perhaps someone with a better knowledge of the resovler can answer to
why no ipv4 address is returned.
