Yes, nslookup gives the current and correct IP

Just in case I goofed something try it without any numbers to see if that makes a difference if the v6.9.3 shows it doesn't try to lookup the name...
The name only resolves to one IP at all times I've tested with nslookup or /dns <NICK> on IRC and the dynamic name only have letters, no numbers.

I'll have to try that when I get the time to see if it reports anything.
Have any plans to bring the LOOKUP entry back for the logfile in future releases?
Why was it removed, filled the log too quickly?
