Name Resolver timeout

Hi all,

I've noticed that inet:gethostbyname/1 times out after about 8 seconds 
(when using native mode). Does any one know of a way to increase this 
timer other than poking directly into inet_db? Or is that about as 
close as there is to an approved method at the moment?

I guess the following comment found in inet.erl should probably give me 
a clue but I am an eternal optimist :)

%% Fixme: add (global) timeout to gethost_native
