With mono 4.0 the reverse DNS broke.
The following code always returns the IP address as string rather than the HostName.
Dns.GetHostEntry("my ip address").HostName
// IP for google.com
var google = Dns.GetHostEntry("126.96.36.199");
Console.WriteLine("Hostname: " + google.HostName);
// outputs: "188.8.131.52" instead of "google.com"
(This is with the mono 4.0 beta update. I didn't see the 4.0 version when filing this bug so hopefully someone can correct the ticket)
Updating with test project
The following app demonstrates an issue within Mono 4, where the DNS.GetHostEntry method returns an incorrect result
### Test Case
### Steps to Reproduce
1. Open test case
2. Run with Mono
### Expected Results
A hostname should be returned
### Actual Results
The IP address is returned.
### Working Version
Do the above with either mono 3.x or on Windows using CSC/.Net

Is Xamarin bugzilla the most appropriate place for this ticket? Is there a higher likelihood of this getting fixed if reported elsewhere?
It appears that the bug was introduced here:
Ok. It is not the case :). Sorry :).
Any idea when this will be fixed?

This is affecting me on Linux too. Currently standing in the way of an important ircd feature - reverse DNS lookups for blacklists (e.g. proxies). Version: mono 22.214.171.124.
The same code works on Windows.
