Unfortunately I hit send before your second email came through-- it explained the problem nicely.

That is a nasty problem; I'd say that the /etc/hosts solution is probably the least painful solution, if (and only if) it works; I'd want to verify that it didn't behave unexpectedly; I'm pretty certain that all host resolution for externals occurs clientside, but I'd not stake my job on it.
