	You did read the INSTALL file, didn't you ?

	Check your  /etc/hosts
	I have a feeling it tells something of style:	bucky bucky.alphapower.com alphapower.com

	This however should not matter, as the "localnames" mapping
	has been around for quite a while.

		alphapower.com	alphapower.com
		bucky		alphapower.com

	... unless you have it coded as:
	... in which case the 'bucky' will not be mapped to the desired
	presentation name ...

	Umm.. No, it is not known problem, but you CAN create it
	with careless configuring...
