[Bro] problem starting bro with no dns

In my node.cfg, all of my hosts are set to localhost. I can start bro as
root, but as a non root user with setcap privs, I get

error: unknown host 'localhost' for given node 'manager' [Temporary... name

Obviously localhost is in /etc/hosts. So why is it bro is having a problem
with this? Not having a functional dns shouldn't prevent bro from spawning,
especially when the host given is just localhost. How can I deal with this
