Any clue as the what would cause the behavior below? From the globus
function names I suspect it has something to do with my hostname not
being in DNS (it's a laptop using DHCP), though 'vons-mac' is in /etc/hosts. If
so I'm not sure how to work around.
This is first time trying to run GT4 gridftpd on my Mac (10.3). I'll attach a
kernel trace of the system calls though nothing jumps out at me from it.

This is probably a dup of 3107, but we haven't been able to figure out the
exact problem yet. We have seen that if the /etc/hosts lines have an alias on
the same line as your fqdn, as in:
126.96.36.199 f.q.d.n f
this problem happens. No alias as:
seems to work.
Can you tell me what sw_vers reports, and also if that /etc/hosts change helps?

I've tried both:
in /etc/hosts with no difference. This is in addition to the following line:
