Weird.  I think the DNS resolution is getting interrupted due to some
bad interaction with the wxPython main loop.  I'll check on the Twisted
mailing list to see if they can figure out what's going on.

In the meantime, I just put out a 0.2.1 release which has a workaround.
I just threw in an explicit call to socket.gethostbyname(), which seems
to work fine.
