 If you do a nslookup on one of the IPs that isn't being resolved,
 does it return properly?
 
 You could try adding something like:
 
         _res.retrans = 1;
         _res.retry = 1; 
 
 (you will probably need an #include <resolv.h> at the top of the
 file too) to the start of main() in http_main.c.  .retrans is the
 retransmission interval, retry is the # of times to retry.
 
 This should work if your BIND is anything near standard.
 
 I am not convinced this will help, though, since it should be
 eventually timing out anyway but it obviously isn't.
