My hostname is "seo" and this is what gets passed down to native 
getaddrinfo too (I recompiled with an extra TRACE call just to see).

When I call native getaddrinfo with ("seo", "0", phints, ppResult) from 
a test program it succeeds (return value 0), but when native getaddrinfo 
is called from wine's getaddrinfo in dlls/ws2_32/socket.c with the exact 
same values, it fails with EAI_NONAME (return value -2).
