Gnome applications tend to use the GIO libraries.  And

Things are complicate further by systems such as nscd - "Name Service
Cache Daemon" that, as it says in the man page, "provides a cache for
the most common name service requests" - and that includes hosts.  The
default TTL for hosts in nscd is 1 hour.

The only time I see references to nscd is in horrible confusing bugs.

If they ignore the DNS TTL and set it to 1 hour I can see why.

I sure hope that GIO hasn't copied that stupid idea. A more probable GIO
user bug is doing the resolve and saving the address object for later
use, never considering that the IP will be different next time.
