Follow-up Comment #1:

I have followed the links and I think I understand the point that this bug
report is about. Basically on Windows, static initializers must not call
functions that may be in shared libraries that haven't been fully loaded yet.

We could make some changes to defer calls to 'gethostname' until it is
actually needed. But I don't think this patch is the right way to do that. If
this is needed, we should properly rework those global string variables that
depend on the host name to be API functions.

This patch is not ready to be applied.

How did you get a 20 second startup time from gethostname, is your system
somehow configured that it doesn't even know its own name and has to reach
another server, or timed out somehow querying the host name?
