I'm not sure that your system has problems _resolving_ pmwiki.org, it's
acting more like the system has difficulty _connecting_ to pmwiki.org.
Especially since ping and other tools seem to work.
For example, instead of using "pmwiki.org" on the command line, perhaps
try the actual IP address 184.108.40.206, as in:
That will bypass DNS resolution altogether.
If you still get a similar error, then the problem isn't in name
resolution but in connection. That would likely indicate that a firewall
(either on your end or pmwiki.org's) is blocking http and subversion
requests between the two hosts.
What's the IP address that you're coming from? Perhaps I can find
out if the pmwiki.org server is blocking such requests.
