2.6.7: Does socket.gethostbyaddr truncate?


I am using python 2.6.7 to do a little network programming, but it seems I don't
get all the results.

When I call socket.gethostbyaddr(IP) entry [1] of the result is a list of 34 addresses.

However when I use: dig -x IP I get a list of 46 addresses.

Am I using the wrong function? Is this a bug? If the latter, is there a work around?
