[Kmymoney-devel] Problem updating prices (host not found)

I just added a new security, and it failed to retrieve a price for it.   
My first thought was I had mistyped the symbol, but instead I actually  
read the error message:  "Unknown host finance.yahoo.com: Host not  
found" which is very strange, since I can ping that host or see it fine  
in Firefox.  It was working fine yesterday.  I assume one of my system  
updates messed up something - it looks like Perl's Finance::Quote got  
reinstalled about a week ago, but is that even used to get Yahoo  
quotes?  Where else should I look?

Thanks for any clues.
