In emergency situations like that, I need a familiar keybinding. I've been using emacs for 29 years. But lately they've been doing some really oddball programming on it. It's as if they don't understand stuff like DNS but try to use it, anyway.
If I understand you correctly you mean that Emacs looks up the ip-adress of the local machine? Maybe you can suppress this with an adequate entry in the /etc/hosts file.
I've considering that. But that means deploying a system of updating /etc/hosts, because other programs would be doing lookups and need it to be accurate across all the hosts. This is normally what DNS is for.
I think at this point, just installing an alternate editor like jed will be the quick solution. Emacs is certainly very powerful. I just think that power has gone to the heads of the developers.
