I recently did a clean install of Mavericks, and ever since I have, I've been having intermittent DNS lookup failures on the terminal only. Browsers work fine (Chrome, Safari).
But nothing works from the command line (
git clone, etc.). The problem will eventually just go away (sometimes 30 seconds, sometimes 10 minutes), and it does help to switch between the network and the guest network (running a 2 year-old Apple Airport Express), but the problem will eventually express on either connection. It's maddening.
It seems bizarre that the problem is restricted to the terminal; it seems like network requests from the terminal would use the same mechanism as a browser.
