It looks like changing the socket constructor to: new
Socket(InetAddress.getByName(dbai.getServer()), dbai.getPort()); should
fix the problem. The InetAddress.getByName call disables any reverse
DNS lookup.

Would you let me know if this fixes the problem? I couldn't reproduce
the problem on my machine.
