Can you tell me more about your system and how you (your administrator)
set up your system so that hostname will return FQDN?

I hope you are not talking about putting FQDN into a file which is
expecting hostname only...

Or in other words: At the moment I am wondering what should be wrong on
my system or on Debian/Ubuntu out of the box: You set hostname to
hostname only (no FQDN) and set domain option in /etc/resolv.conf for
example for FQDN. But maybe I am missing something.
