What does your /etc/hosts show for localhost and localhost6? i.e. output

    grep -i localhost /etc/hosts

And also for each of the interface addresses on your box,

    grep x.x.x.x /etc/hosts

There appear to be two problems here:

1. Whatever IP address it has found, condor has done a reverse lookup to find
   "localhost6" and then a forward lookup found something else.

   7.6.9 is now paranoid about matching forward and reverse DNS, in case
   you have configured access controls as *.yourdomain.com and a third
   party decides to put foo.yourdomain.com in their reverse DNS.

2. Condor crashing out under this situation (clearly it should either
   continue or terminate gracefully)

Running condor_master under strace (strace -f condor_master 2>strace.txt) or
gdb (gdb condor_master // run // bt) may show some more info.
