Bug in 1.6.3?

Malcolm Ross Kinsella Ryan
I just installed MediaWiki 1.6.3. It all seems to have gone okay, with
the exception of an error message at the top of the browser window:

  Warning:  socket_sendto() Host lookup failed [-10001]: Unknown host in
  wiki/includes/GlobalFunctions.php on line 1504

I checked out the offending line, and it appears to be trying to open a
socket to a machine called "webster" to do some kinds of statistics logging.
I commented the line out and everything seems to work just fine.

What's going on here?

It could be something that was left over from when they were developing
it, although it seems strange that you are the only person to report a
problem.

The wfIncrStats() function starts with:

  if ($wgDBname != 'enwiki' and $wgDBname != 'dewiki' and $wgDBname !=
'commonswiki' and $wgDBname != 'testwiki')
    return true;

Does your wgDBname happen to be one of these, perhaps "testwiki"?

Looks like Domas accidentally committed a live debugging hack while fixing
something else. I've removed it on trunk and REL1_6 branch.

If you're affected, 'svn up' if you checked out the source from Subversion or
apply this patch:
