I have the same problem... it appears to only do that on unqualified
names.  ('foo' vs 'foo.example.com')  As I recall, it didn't do that
originally when openssh replaced non-free-ssh, but in the last month or

It's annoying to me as well, since the machine I'm usually using doesn't
have the modem, so I ssh to the machine with a modem and now have to
specify the full hostname.  (And, nope, I don't have ISDN, since it's
per-minute and real money...   demand dialing on a modem, um, sucks :))
