I found performance problem in the hostnmae lookup in php-4.3.0RC2 on linux.  Windows platform works fine.


$localhost = 'localhost';
$ds = ldap_connect ( $localhost );
ldap_bind ( $ds );


When i run this script, php make a dns lookup to find the name localhost and if not found make a local search (/etc/hosts). 
Normaly, it should search first in the /etc/hosts file and next make dns lookup.

the /etc/hosts and /etc/nsswitch.conf is good.
