    Yes, but I think neither of them is a thing to do now.  I feel a bit
    inclined to put BLOCK_INPUT around getaddrinfo/freeaddrinfo to be on
    the safe side.

I would rather not.  You see, the chance that a quit during this call
will cause memory clobberage is very small.  It might happen once
a year.

But it will surely happen every day that users will get stuck in this
call, because they can't reach the DNS server.  We do not want to make
them wait 3 minutes for it to time out.
