[Dnsmasq-discuss] Huge number of lookups for 'yes'

I don't think dnsmasq is the culprit (yet) but I'm not sure what is:
I have a linux box at home which does the DNS for my lan ~4 laptops
one desktop + odds n sods.
root at mythic:~# head /var/log/daemon.log
Apr 25 06:34:00 mythic
root at mythic:~# tail /var/log/daemon.log
Apr 28 10:32:06
root at mythic:~# grep 'yes.elwell.org.uk from 127.0.0.1'
/var/log/daemon.log | wc -l
now it strikes me that thats a *lot* of requests for a non-existent
host on my network. Is there any way to trace what application is
likely to be guilty? I couldn't see anything in the source code for
dnsmasq (the only yes in there was in the suse config)
Its running ubuntu 9.mumble, the timestamps don't tie in with cron
entries. I've stopped mythtv but it's not that (as far as I can tell)
has anyone else noticed similar 'rogue' lookups?
