DNS is good at having behavior sensitive to the environment you are 
using it in.  I'm not sure if there are any known bugs which would 
explain the problem you're encountering, mostly because I don't really 
know what problem you're encountering. ;)  "twisted app using XMPP code" 
and "get a DNSNameError" don't say a whole lot.  What API is failing? 
What other details can you provide?  It may be a bug in Twisted, or it 
may be a configuration issue relating to your Mac host.
