That's what the bent host said yesterday. This morning, after the fix
(an sd command to undo some malware activity):

ghe@sbox:~$ hostname -f

sd, I've noticed, often makes other software break. Several of my
scripts, for example, started producing peculiar output and/or crashing.

In this case, it broke the vastly complex 'hostname' command.

Whatever, all is (seems to be) OK now, thanks to this list and the
duckduckgo search engine...
