Has this problem persisted for you?  If so, restart the service manager 
components (first making sure that any existing ones have been killed), 
and try again.  There is some local subnet host discovery (ala Bonjour) 
that could account for the problem you're seeing.  Either way, if this 
is a bug I'd like to make sure it gets addressed.
