Subject:   Strange Reverse DNS problem.

I was hoping someone here can answer this.

On a FreeBSD (2.2.7-Stable) system I use, reverse DNS seems to work
sometimes and other times it doesn't.  For example, a "w" or finger command
will show the hostnames fine, but last shows IP addresses.  (Not for
everything though.  Some IPs in last are shown correctly as hostnames while
others are just IPs)

Any idea what could be wrong?  Reverse DNS is working, as "w" and finger
show accurate information.  (So does host or dig or nslookup)
