    Thanks for the bug report. It seems like a false positive.

    However, I cannot reproduce it here

    * Python 2.7.3 (default, Jan 2 2013, 13:56:14) [GCC 4.7.2] on linux2
    * Docutils 0.11 [repository] udated 2013-02-21.

    so I am at a loss regarding the source of the problem.

    Looks like someone in Debian is also able to trigger it in a clean environment: https://bugs.debian.org/724070.

    Unfortunately, the Debian bug does not report a Python version.
    I am still not able to reproduce the false positive here

    Daniel Schepler has provided some extra information in the Debian bug log. The issue is apparently caused by some ISPs' non-standard DNS redirection responses to non-existent hostnames. I don't know if these DNS servers are consistently configured to at least give a proper NXDOMAIN response for ".invalid" domains, but it might be worth a try.

    I removed the offending test, as it depends on settings we do not have control over and is largely redundant.

    Thank you for reporting and investigating.
