The gui for dssi clients (hexter, fluidsynth-dssi, etc) will only appear if the hostname is associated with localhost in /etc/hosts, but nm keeps modifying the file and overwriting my changes.

> ::1 <hostname> localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
Yes, it keeps adding that line, I don't know why. But with IPV6INIT
set to "IPV6INIT=no" (and NetworkManager restarted), even when that
line exists in /etc/hosts, my DSSI plugins work here.
No such luck here. As long as that line exists in /etc/hosts, regardless of where in the file it occurs, it prevents the dssi gui from appearing.
Guess I'm stuck with editing the hosts file each time, like Steve said.
Still, there must be a better solution...
