EAI (not EAP, sorry) are gethostname API specific errors.  The point is, 
we could lookup the (EAI 12): error from the platform's netdb.h and know
what it is, trying to grok (75012) is goofy.  But since I'm not terribly
affected by this, feel free to drop the EAI bit if you object strongly.

Jeff is most likely to have an opinion on EAI specifically.
