That sounds like hostname resolution issues.  Even when used locally, X
still uses networking.  That's one reason why you find your hostname
jammed into the localhost line (where it doesn't really belong) in
the /etc/hosts file.

[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
