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.
