[erlang-bugs] inet_res: unpredictable resolution failure ?

Hello,

I suspect a bug in inet_res. When using this resolver it seems we get  
somewhat unpredictable results:
- gethostbyname can fails sometime (nxdomain error)
- connect sometimes fails with nxdomain error
If retry immediately the query / connect most of the time succeed.

I know that this module is not documented, but to my knowledge it is  
the only way to do DNS lookup on some specific type of records (mx or  
srv records).

I can provide details if you need to.

Thank you !
