I had the same problem (and I think I still have the same problem).
I installed OpenBSD 2.6 on a SUN4M (sparc) machine a few days ago.
Everytime when I logged into the system or made a su or netstat -r my dial
on demand line went up. So I started to tcpdump all my interfaces on my
dail out machine (eth0, sl0, ...).
There seems to be a strange problem in OpenBSD with long hostnames. Long
hostname get cutted down to about 16 chars, so when I log in from my mac
"powermac.home.n-r-g.com" the OpenBSD box tried to resolve
"powermac.home.n-" and this is a inexistant domain.
I was not shure if this was a OpenBSD bug or just a misconfiguration (this
is my first OpenBSD box, I allready used Slowaris and Linux and thought it
would be good to have a look into a good OS ;-) )
Has nobody else seen that effect?
