i do have that line in /etc/hosts (it comes by default) and among the rest
of lines i appended is not the culprit where gnumeric hangs
- 128.189.137.yy (mine is 128.189.137.xx and both are on that dhcp lan)..
it's weird because it always goes to the same ``yy''.. might be there smth
gnumeric needs (say a printer, etc)?..

i was thinking of adding a rule with iptables to deny gnumeric access to
eth0, but the string option is not implemented in my kernel (i assume i
have to recompile it)..
