User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1)
Build Identifier: 

When starting, Mozilla is searching for a "dist" machine.
It sends thousands of requests to our DNS servers and it takes more than 5 minutes to start.
We are working on AIX 5.2 ML2 with Mozilla 1.4

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. To get traces we start the tcpdump command
2. Start mozilla 


Actual Results:  
The result is always the same.
Mozilla takes 5 minutes to start

Expected Results:  
Why Mozilla is searching after the "dist" machine ?

Can you try running Mozilla 1.7 from http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.7/contrib/mozilla-powerpc-ibm-aix5.1.0.0-1.7.tar.gz and look if this version has the same problem? Mozilla 1.4 is really old and many bugs were resolved since Mozilla 1.4 was released.
what are your proxy settings? (edit/preferences/advanced/proxy)
