      Description

      ###@###.###
      Desc:
      The current alpha3 implementation of HotJava INCORRECTLY assumes that
       if a WWW URL host part can be resolved in DNS it does NOT need to pass
       it to the firewall proxy, but can instead access the WWW host
       directly. A dangerous assumption i.m.h.o.

      When I disable the resolving of external Internet addresses
      temporarily HotJava accesses the firewall and seems to works fine
       otherwise.
