[PC-BSD Testing] [Re: Testing Digest, Vol 5, Issue 2] Message 4, strange IP

I got the same thing in my DNS field, I also remember seeing something
about borgcube.comcast.something or other.
Also, the network manager doesn't work at all in this snapshot,
ethernetconfig is missing.(/PCBSD/networkmanager/bin/ethernetconfig
'nve0' not found.)
I chose to use DHCP during install, and had to start dhclient manually
after fixing the DNS address and stuff. I don't know if it wasn't
restarted after changes were made or was never started at all.
I also had a period after my chosen hostname for some reason, which
has happened in every version of PCBSD I've used; but I've been using
the KDE networking utility on all of them as well.
The rest of the install seemed to go fine apart from the above
