Anyway, I also use 192.168.x.x address on my internal network, so I made
sure my local DNS server was setup as the Primary DNS for the
168.192.in-addr.arpa domain and it ensured that the DNS lookup that was
happening failed quickly rather than trying to search the greater web.
Anyway it works for me now without a hitch.
Hope this gives you some further ideas.
