Package: hostname
Version: 2.07
Severity: normal

    % hostname --version | od
    hostname 2.05

I.e., with --version (or -V), output is on stderr instead of stdout.
The man page says:

  -V, --version
       Print version information on standard output and exit successfully.
This fouls up, among other things, my startx script, which greps the
output of hostname --version for the GNU string.

This appears to be fixed in recent versions of hostname. Therefore I close the
bug report.
