Thanks, Y'all,
  I received over 25 responses to this one: after installing the resolver
my console window starting getting messages like:
    nres_gethostbyname != w.x.y.z.

  This, it turns out, is a known bug, and thanks to many who pointed it out.

One dark note, however, is this report:

>>"... beware that some of us had experiences with ypserv dying for unknown
>>reasons after installing the new version."
>>David St. Pierre 415/823-6800 {att,bellcore,sun,ames,decwrl}!pacbell!david

I just installed the patch (which is a new ypserv) and re-booted. We'll
see what happens....

Thanks again,
