Have you checked if the hosts-file change back if you change location
back to the one you edited your hosts-file in? Network admin is runned
with sudo (gksudo), so it is no bug that it has the rights to edit the
hosts file. And if it changes the hosts-file back to the state it was in
the different locations I would call it a feature. If it just erase it
every time, I would file a bug.

Maybe I have misunderstood something, but hope this helps.
