When you create an INetAddress via getByName(), and then subsequently make a call to toString() there is normally no problems. But if the network is down then that call to toString() will result in a major delay to the application (due to the hostName being null in that INetAddress instance).
We have spent an awful long time tracking this down and did not expect to find that the cause of our problem was the normally innocuous toString method.
