If they are crashing, it must be a problem inside the core libraries. A bug, 
that is.

Guy: can you provide us with more information? I.e., open a bug ticket in 
bugs.kde.org and put there information such as a backtrace. It would also 
help to know if utilities such as ping and telnet work on those hostnames, or 
KDE applications not using ioslaves. Since the routines are the same, they 
should be crashing as well.

One other thing: make sure you are running either KDE 3.0.5a or 3.1. A lot of 
bugs have been corrected since that could be the cause of your problem.
