Editing /etc/hosts seems like the right way to fix it.  I think the

NETWORK_INTERFACE = <ip address>

The only reason this doesn't break more software is most daemons bind 
to, so they listen on *all* interfaces, regardless of how the 
hosts file is set up.


Doh!  I guess I should RTFM. :)

In my case I needed the real IP in /etc/hosts anyway, for another application, so it ultimately didn't matter.
