It shouldn't happen if you aren't using kppp.  If it does, then something
isn't configured right...  Maybe you could just alias the name of your
machine to localhost in /etc/hosts.  Also you could just slap a
network card in your machine (or ifconfig a dummy interface) and
assign your hostname to that...

I can't recall ever having this problem, but I've always used a "real"
name that resolved to some fixed address in /etc/hosts since I've run
X.  (I got an ethernet card right about the time I finally got enough
RAM to run X.)

Just always remember one thing...  X is network-based.  When you screw
with your network settings, X can easily get confused.
