 Slow OpenWindows startup using CDE
I'm running 2.5 on a Sparc 20/61 and have installed the CDE login server
to start at boot time.  Things work great if I log in with the CDE desktop,
but every once in a while when I log in using the OpenWindows desktop,
it displays the Solaris banner and says it's starting up the OpenWindows
desktop, but then it just sits there for about 3 minutes.  I does seem
to finally start up everything, but it's frustrating waiting 3 minutes.
It normally takes only 10 seconds or so.  It seems to do this more often
when I first log in in the morning, but it happens during the day as
well.  I've also noticed about that there is a 3 minute difference
between when my .Xdefaults gets opened and when my .openwin-init file
gets looked at, so whatever is happening, it't between these two

Any thoughts?

Yes, it's the good old ``ToolTalk: tt_open attempts to do a host
lookup on an invalid IP address'' bug once again:

100626-08 (OpenWindows 3.0)
101227-01 (OpenWindows 3.2)
101495-02 (OpenWindows 3.3)
??????-?? (OpenWindows 3.5)

If your DNS server is unavailable, this ``host lookup on an invalid IP
address'' times out after 3 minutes.  I don't know if there's already
a patch available for solaris 2.5 (or if this has been reported to
