This is somewhat of a Condor bug.  (I reported it awhile back...)  I saw
it when our DNS was down, and the startd was unable to determine the
hostname of the machine where the job was submitted.  The startd had the
IP address, which ought to have been enough.

I believe the solution is to make sure your OSX machine can do a reverse
DNS lookup (IP->Hostname) of the submitting machine.
