Very probably doing a 'gethostbyname()' and can't find
localhost.xyz.com, which is probably what 'uname -n' returns.

When it can't find that, it goes to /etc/hosts.

You mentioned a whole lot of files, you forgot /etc/nsswitch.conf (if
you have it). I bet it contains a line: "hosts: dns files"

Why not change /etc/hosts to read:
" localhost.xyz.com localhost"

Or change your host's name to "still.xyz.com" (if you have Linux, do a
'grep -r still' in /etc/sysconfig, if you have something else you could
be better off just changing /etc/hosts).
