Confirmed here, although it did not prevent me personally from sending
mail, since I had already set up postfix to rewrite such
user@localhostname addresses back.

Reverting commit 3a59cc840693 (" * lisp/gnus/message.el: Reduce
redundancy with send-mail-function") fixed the problem.  It looks like
this commit changed some important options and looks NEWS-worthy.
