[CentOS] rpc.statd: gethostbyname error for ...

Lately, the system log on my CentOS 5 box, with all the latest updates, 
have started filling up with messages of the form:

Jan 24 09:47:26 i58524 rpc.statd[3452]: gethostbyname error for i58524
Jan 24 09:47:26 i58524 rpc.statd[3452]: STAT_FAIL to i58524 for SM_MON 
Jan 24 09:47:26 i58524 kernel: lockd: cannot monitor

It does not seem like there is really anything wrong with the hosts 
setup, though - the gethostbyname call in question works appears just 
fine in other programs. Does anyone have any idea what may be going on?

Note: i58524 is the local hostname, is the IP address of an 
NFS server I'm using actively (so nothing suspicious, there.)
