Yes, it does - it means that there is no bug!

If you configure your NSLU2 in the Linksys firmware to use a static IP
address, then d-i will use the network values from that configuration,
including IP, nameserver, hostname and domain name.  As you can see,
it picks up the hostname properly ("slug", overwriting the default
"debian").  And you probably didn't set a domain name in the firmware,
otherwise it should have picked that up too.

If you send me a copy of your /dev/mtdblock1, I can verify whether you
set a domain name or not.
