I have a static IP, and with the DSL modem set to "pass through" mode, my linux "crate" is doing everything... and blowing up. Been working rock solid, went through the update, a report is made about something missing and I go into scattered chickens mode becauce weird stuff is happening, like the domainname being added as an alias to localhost minutes after I fix it.
I did lookup on your hostname and got an IP but a reverse lookup on that IP gives adsl-070-145-234-214.sip.int.bellsouth.net. I wonder if the problem arises because the forward and reverses conflict, and perhaps one of the configuration programs is "fixing" it for you?
It's brute force but you could try "chattr" to make your hosts file immutable.
