As you say, similar but not the same. In particular:
- I never hold a connection longer than a few hours [I don't think Duke
Telcom would take kindly to me effectively appropriating one of their
modems. ;) ]
- nslookup fails for me with the same "pattern".
Which is not to say that my problem isn't related to yours; just
providing more information.
