TUMBLEWEED Poor performance in VMware Fusion can be a `search localdomain` issue

I figured this out, it turned out to be a DNS resolution issue. For some reason leaving ‘search localdomain’ in resolv.conf generates some slowness. I’m not sure if it’s because 127.0.0.1 isn’t mapped to ‘localhost.localdomain’ in /etc/hosts by default, or whatever, but taking it out fixes the performance issue.
