That's not helpful.

Problems can have many causes. One of them may be that
localhost.localdomain is unexpected; another may be that the software
you were using is buggy, or misconfigured. Also, it could be that the
problem you experienced back then has been fixed in the mean time.

There's only one way to be sure, and that is to examine the problem in
detail. If it is clear from your example that localhost.localdomain does
indeed cause many problems, we could consider not using it by default
anymore. However, if we find that the problem is just a bug, it would be
better to fix it rather than removing something which many people expect
to be there.

Since you're not providing details, however, this isn't possible, and
the only sensible course of action is to ignore your claims.

pavement is precisely one bananosecond
