Yeah, a NULL return means an error occurred. Most likely it's an invalid
address, I get an NXDOMAIN for "IBMFB1L0DH.ercsarnia.ca".

Clearly Dreamweaver isn't expecting that call to fail as it doesn't bother
checking the return result (assuming it's Dreamweaver that makes the call
and not Wine itself). So the questions are:

1) Where does this name come from?
2) Why does it fail?
3) Why does Dreamweaver not expect that?

You need to do some more research I think. Try grepping the logs for that
name and see where it appears first.

BTW a +all trace is usually overkill, +relay is enough
