My guess here is that Riakka and the test are failing/slow because you
previously got it started with a unresolvable DNS name which is now
cached in your ring state. Stop the server and delete everything in
data/ring/* When you restart the server, it should work properly.

I typically hang out in #riak on freenode -- if you have questions
feel free to drop by. :)
