Weirdness in Parallels

June 28, 2010 5:17:13.000

Ok, I have a Windows 7 VM setup - it's using my wifi adaptor (this is parallels) for network, so that it can appear to be a "separate machine". I also have shared setup for things like the Documents folder. So... I found this odd. I couldn't get a Seaside server to start, and it boiled down to this - executing the following:

IPSocketAddress hostNameByAddress: #[127 0 0 1]

Comes back with - wait for it - '.psf'. I'm baffled; the call goes straight to the VM for some host API call. I suppose maybe I should configure a different sort of VM, but how much time do I want to spend on that? It was simpler to hack class IPSocketAddress and save the image to a new name. I'd still like to know what the heck is going on though...
