My memory jogs here. There's something in the faq or somewhere about
making sure X doesn't go off onto the network looking for various
information. A resolv.conf setting, for your own box? 

/tries to focus on fading memories. FAILS.

I think it was your equivelant of 

/gropes around in /etc

these lines in /etc/hosts localhost.localdomain  localhost genius.chateau.dec genius

The localhost or the hostname (genius) may be missing

My memory is awol on this, but somebody will correct me.
