There are more calls to gethostbyname() after the get_myname () call. load_interfaces() is doing gethostbyname() for every single value of the

via gethostbyname() :(

Another solution would be to delay the samba lib initialization until the first samba request. This way it will be clearly visible for the user that the hang is due to a samba request. Of course the initialization must be
made interruptable.

Opinions ?
