[ale] Debian sarge...slow dns lookup

Hi all.  I have Debian Sarge and Sid installed on a couple of machines 
at home and am having the identical problem on both of them.  When 
connecting to the web, the status bar says "Resolving www.somesite.com" 
then after 5-7 seconds, it connects fine and proceeds only to have the 
same problem when I go to another domain.  It does not do this from 
Fedora, Suse, or Windows.

Upon googling, there was some rumble about ipv6-to-ipv4 translation and 
slow dns lookups, but nothing solid.  I would try disabling ipv6 
translation to test this, but have NO idea how to do this (google'd for 
that too).

Any insight on this problem would be most appreciated.
