I have often seen this problem when building gnome-core (which uses idl
for the applets) on my machine at work with no valid DNS.  Ping localhost
works just fine, however, if it cannot ping the machine's hostname, it
will fail just like above.  When I hardcode my hostname with my current
dynamic IP address into /etc/hosts, it works fine.

On a side note, I hope that ORBit and any other TCP/IP aware programs are
not requiring that DNS be properly functional in order for the program to
work.  I know I am not on the only network with a DNS-paranoid system

Best of Luck,
