So one theme from the bug report is that NetworkManager is making 
changes to /etc/hosts that are confusing Rabbit. So to help figure out 
if this is the problem, can you tell me:

* What does "ping ${hostname}" look like when networking is up?
* What does "ping ${hostname}" look like when networking is down?
