It looks like the getaddrinfo function dont consider the /etc/hosts file so if a domain cant be converted to an ip using dns server then the error will show.

if i try to do:
include("") the error will show up

if i do 
include("my.real.domain.on.the.internet") everything will work fine

Does this still apply on 4.1.1?

on a simple include(""); the error would show up as 'Warning: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service
not known in <URI>'.
This has been checked with multiple domains. The bug was not present in 4.0.6 on our machine, but it is now. Feel free to analyse
Another interesting this is that you have to add all subdomains to /etc/hosts too. Not only the main domain. For every new subdomain using php, you have to add them all.
I believe this bug is caused by php not using the nameserver specified in /etc/resolv.conf.
This is a very open bug indeed, because the simple act of searching for that line on google returns a whole stack of sites. The only solution is adding each and every site to /etc/hosts.
Please look into this!
