Thanks, but I just figured it out.  Though DNS was correct (I checked
it several times), a typo in /etc/hosts screwed this one up for me.  I
ended up using the java debugger to print out the name it thought it
was looking for and noticed it didnt match. The error reporting from
java on this is near unusable.
