   When I use my laptop without a network connection, it becomes very, very
   slow launching applications. I've done some tracing and apparently it
   some kind of request to a DNS server. Not just any DNS but openDNS in
   particular. When its off net, it waits for the time-out before continuing.
   So two quesions Why contact DNS for any app launch? (This includes
   apps that have no possibility of using the net)
   2nd. Why openDNS? I had never heard of them before and certainly
   haven't signed up for their service.
