We were seeing this happening recently as well whilst running 1.1.14 - we
were unable to get to our own homepage, but were able to get to others.

After upgrading to 1.1.17 the problem seems to have gone away. There was a
change in 1.1.15 (from memory) which fixed a problem with IPs for popular
sites being corrupted - I can only presume this is what was causing it.
