That's also, I believe, what a local "dnsmasq" would do.  But in order 
for the local Apache to use it, you'd have to set as a 
resolver in /etc/resolv.conf, which apparently is not the case here.

To get back to the basic issue..
We seem to have, on the same host
- an "old" Apache configuration, which does not trigger client DNS names 
- a "new" Apache configuration, which does
Yes ?

So I guess we can exclude for the time being the possibility that it 
might be something else than Apache which does the lookups (I was 
thinking of denyhosts or the like).

Next obvious question : what's the difference between the old and new 
configurations ? (sorry if that was explained before, I did not get back 
to the archives).
Do I vaguely remember it had something to do with SSL, or was that 
another thread ?
