Thats the thing I don't understand. Here's the weirder part: I just tried
opening an IDL socket using
the real hostname (blahblah.physics.uleth.ca) and this works. I thought that
it would choke for sure when given the hostname rather than IP.
So it looks like I have a workaround, but I don't think I'm any wiser.
