looks like you are right. After experimenting a bit, it looks like there 
is a timeout at work somewhere:

If I try to connect to a non previously resolved name, after some quite 
long time, it works.

looking into /etc/rc.conf, /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/hosts:

-are you on DHCP?
-If not, what 'defaultrouter' setting?
-and what is in /etc/resolv.conf?
Then also:

-are you behind a firewall?
-are you setting the browser to use a proxy?
-and what about NAT, routed, named?
The Netopia ADSL gateway has an integrated hub to which all machines are 
connected. DHCP is in use and the gateway act as a dnscache.

in rc.conf:
in resolv.conf:
what I find strange is that nslookup/dig works fine.
