After upgrade to 2.8, "Other WordPress news" no longer available on the dashboard due to a RSS error

Description

I have tested this on two different servers, so I do hope I'm not posting something that nobody else has as a problem.

I have upgraded to 2.8 immediately when it was out. Ever since then, the planet news on the dashboard return the following error:

RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: 0: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known

Cleaning all the _transient_timeout_feed options did not help, so I assume this is a bug.

Thats not something wordpress can handle, Its something to do with the way PHP is set up.
