Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: bind9-host

Description:    Ubuntu 8.04.2
Release:        8.04
Package version: bind9-host   1:9.4.2.dfsg.P2-2ubuntu0.1

egrep ^host /etc/nsswitch.conf:
hosts:          files dns

`host localhost` times out if no dns servers are reachable, despite:

# head /etc/hosts       localhost

this behaviour does not occur with package: host  20000331-9
