It's probably so, because I don't see why apache2 is getting it right
after the boot is over and you have gained access to the shell.
That's why I thought you were using dhcp at first.

Yes, I confirm a possible problem with a recent libc or kernel at
boot time, but this isn't related to DHCP.

I have no doubt: this has nothing to do with DHCP per se. DHCP was
useful to understand that gethostname (or uname) is not working

I looked up a possible bug already in the database against libc6 or the
kernel-image, but I haven't found any. I think the bug should have
'critical' as severity, since it can break applications started at
boot time that relay on the FQDN to work properly.

On my laptop, on which I do not use DHCP when I'm at home, with the
kernel 2.6.38-2:

Thu Mar 31 21:53:49 2011: Starting HTTP cache proxy server: wwwoffled
(offline mode) done.

and with the kernel 2.6.39-1:

Sun Jun  5 22:50:14 2011: Starting HTTP cache proxy server: wwwoffled
wwwoffled[5199] Warning: Failed to get name/IP address for host 'xvii'
[No address associated with hostname].
Sun Jun  5 22:50:14 2011: (offline mode) done.

and no problems with a manual restart.

If this is the case the kernel-image package must clearly be the targed
of the bug report.

Do you want to file it yourself? This bug (#629899) could be merged
later with it as soon as it's been registered in the database.
