 Yes and no. This reminds me of a problem we had on our vhf net
when ka1nnn was working on the code. If you turned domain translate on,
there was a problem with reverse lookups that caused jnos to hang, but not 
really hang.
It wouldn't accept user input, and the trace screen would stop. this would 
on the first reverse lookup attempt. while it was doing this it was still
listening to the frequency and queueing future lookups, and when the machine
would "Unhang" it would spit out 30 or 40 reverse lookup requests
for all the packets it monitored while it was "Hung".

Ka1nnn did something to fix this in his code, and added a "Domain QueryPTR" 

 Hope this helps.
