slow netscape startup

When my laptop is disconnected from the network, Netscape is extremely
slow to load the default homepage.  It starts o.k., and eventually
(several minutes later) loads the homepage.  I've tried making my
homepage a local file://blahblah and using web page served up by Apache
running locally.  I've tried turning named on and off.  I have my
virtual hostname listed in /etc/hosts, and host.conf reads hosts,bind. 
resolv.conf list three nameservers: this laptop, the caching nameserver
on my office lan, and my isp's.  Is Netscape tring to resolve root
nameservers or something?
