Stone crash on SIGSEGV in NetGetPeerInfo

When a client requests login to the stone, the stone maps the IP address of that client to a hostname using the OS call gethostbyaddr( ) (see man page of gethostbyaddr for details).  If this call fails, the stone will crash with a SIGSEGV.  The resulting stack trace in the stone log will contain the following entries (cluttered with much hex info):

  startActivityForObject EventScan
  getEvents NetHibernate


On the stone machine, make sure that all IP addresses used by clients logging into the stone are correctly mapped to a hostname.
