User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030827
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030827

I am using my own style of dynamic IP address resolution for hosts with dynamic
IP. An IP is valid for about 10 Minutes, so the information obtained from the 
dnsresolver should not be used *forever*.

Only a few browser display it correctly :-)
Well I *think* Omniweb does the right thing ...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get to a host http://mydynip.org
2. Let the browser point there until the lifetime of the IP has expired
3. Try to reload that page - browser cannot fetch the pages anymore

Actual Results:  
it used the old IP the fetch pages

Expected Results:  
get the new IP

We used to do that on purpose, for security reasons.

It's fixed by bug 205726 (on the trunk), but that won't be in Mozilla 1.5 final.
