I'am refering to the RESOLV command
From the Manual.txt : サSpecify which name resolver should be used in 
what orderォ
If i ommit RES_NS, delegate has to use gethostbyname from the os it is 
running on. (If i understood things right).

No, the problem reproduced, if i take the line RES_NS= 
from the config file, delegate starts getting timeouts. At first i had 
no RESOLV or RES_NS line in my configuration.
