No Matt, this is way different, at least what I am experiencing.

Normally when it is blocking on the DNS lookups at least the app reacts
normally, I can still open new tabs and whatnot.

This time however when it blocks it locks up, cannot do anything and it
appears the application has totally locked, ready to dump core.  Switching
virtual desktops shows the application in its 'outline' state with the
graphics toolkit (I hope you know what I mean with this).
And after a few seconds or a few minutes it will recover.

Unless something with regard to resolving was changed to block harder than
