This is a network problem. gethostbyname is a Winsock API call.
Possibly it can't find the host database or DNS.

If all that you've shown is all of the log file, then it's hard to
tell why FB terminated suddenly, since the last gethostbyname error
would've happened almost 5 hours before. And, that would make those 2
problems unrelated, unless you cut out some of the log file just to
shorten your message.
