gethostbyaddr returns the original IP when an error occurs, but this string is always 15 chars long. This means that if the original IP was shorter than that, garbage will appear at the end of the line. I've temporarily fixed it by passing an IP with 15 blanks added to its end.

I can't reproduce this. Could you please include an example script which
demonstrates this behaviour? And maybe try the latest CVS snapshot
from  too??

Works for me (4.0.5-dev) and no feedback.
