Bug#53121: hostname


the  problem here is that a few programs dont fall-back to  use
hostname/domainname correctly. (i.e. gethostname() and  look it up if fqdn
is  needed).

I think you just can file the bug against every package which does not do
that. However keep in mind that most daemons running in production mode will
use any  sombolic name which is different from FQDN and therefore hand

See the man page for "hostname" describing the methods to get those names.
