I see this here on 1.1 also, but I thought it might be due to my system
losing the sense of "who" it is!  I no longer see the hostname on the
login prompt, or if I do a uname -a , for example.  And, no info goes to
/var/log/messages (since syslogd doesn't start I presume).  Where else, 
other than the /etc/hostname does it keep what it believes to be the 
hostname of the system?  If I knew that, I think I could fix this on my
end........I think!?
