	I think so too.

	See  libc/myhostname.c  for the code..

I guess you do not have DNS resolving in use, rather rely on "/etc/hosts"-
file (via NIS perhaps!), and in it you have a line like:	hostname hostname.fqdn

so that primary hostname is "hostname", not "hostname.fqdn"..
Change the file so that FQDN form is first, and then the current
code will find your "true" identity..

... (the suggested "bugfix" implemented in my sourceset..)

	Yes, once I am convinced that my Solaris 2.3 troubles are
	really due to Solaris, and not my somehow botched Zmailer
	sources.. Hmm..  (malloc() corruption -> SIGSEGV  :-(  )

	Soon, I hope.
