This sounds like a problem that I've been having. This is what I heard
from Wolfram:

We are currently working on a fix to this problem.  The problem resides in
the AppleTalk network.  Their is no exact date when we will have a patch
available.  We will email you as soon as there is a fix.  We apologize for
any inconveniences this problem has caused.

In the meantime, a simple workaround is to disable the AppleTalk network
before you start Mathematica and start a kernel evaluation.  Then enable
the AppleTalk network.  This can all be done through the Control Strip
that comes with 8.5 or through the Chooser.
