Your fix solved the problem when the dc_list refresh itself went wrong 
(because the WINS server is not
available or something like that).

This is to reset the expiration time when all entries in dc_list become 
null because the domaincontrollers are not available.
These will remain null resulting in a UnknownHostException at each 
request until the dc_list is refreshed again (after the normal 
expiration time).
