Found a bug in documentation on the site?

Ciao a tutti,

I was making some experiments with fetchmail + tor and I found a strange
behaviour: at the address
there is this example:

set no spambounce 
set no bouncemail
poll provider
    plugin "socat STDIO SOCKS4A:,socksport=9050"
    protocol imap
    user user with password password, ssl
    mda "/usr/bin/procmail -d userlocal"

but sniffing the  traffic I see a dns query for  the address of provider
_at the beginning_ of session:  looks like fetchmail doing these queries
at the  beginning of the  session without any  help from socat  and only
then it calls socat to download the messages, actually (?) late.

I think this behaviour must at least indicated in that page.

Un esteso e "normale" uso della crittografia è il sistema più forte
per rivendicare il diritto alla privacy nelle comunicazioni
telematiche: come tutti i diritti e come i muscoli se non viene
esercitato costantemente si atrofizza e va perso.
