I havn't touched the hosts file, it's still the empty one (i.e. all
commented out lines) that avahi has installed.  I havn't got as far as
putting anything into it myself yet as I've not got beyond trying to get
the avahi-daemon from  avahi-0.6.7 to correctly start.

But if it did exist then it didn't get closed and that is was causing
the problem here, NOT the "broken" parser.
