	I have rewritten the  getaddrinfo.c  implementation code
	now since your letter (and travelled to Hungaroring and back),
	and the frequency of the  getaddrinfo()  yielding wrong result
	as gone down dramatically.

	I have also found that systems (Linux and Hurd) with  glibc
	version 2.0/2.1/2.1.* are likely to contain incorrect implementation
	of that same function -- namely it doesn't yield proper code
	at DNS lookup timeouts, but claims EAI_NODATA.

	The culprit is INNER NET's  getaddrinfo()  code, which may mean
	that also some other systems have this same problem.  I don't
	know which all...
