GSWeb Apache2 adaptor appears to fail when it cannot name-resolve (through host file or DNS) the IP number of an application instance host.

For the following application definition fragment from the adaptor plist configuration file:

    hello = {
      adaptorTemplatesPath =
      canDump = YES;
      instances = {
        1 = {
          parameters = { transport=socket; };

The following errors appear in the Apache log file:

[Fri Jan 14 20:21:41 2005] [error] GSWeb[22329]: gethostbyname( returns no host
[Fri Jan 14 20:21:41 2005] [warn] GSWeb[22329]: hello:1 NOT LISTENING on
[Fri Jan 14 20:21:41 2005] [warn] GSWeb[22329]: Marking hello unresponsive for 3 s. notResonding count: 16 handled count: 0

The problem was confirmed to be a spurious failure when reverse resolution of the IP address is not possible by adding the host to the forward and reverse DNS zones. This should not be strictly necessary for the adaptor to work.

The platform is NetBSD/i386 2.0, Apache 2.0.52, GSWeb from CVS 1 January 2005.
