it is mandatory for me because I do not have the short name in
/etc/host, only the long name.
not	   test1

in second case -name test1  works. You are right.

No we do not use neither localhost for a node name.

I have something like	

and the simple fact to have in /etc/hosts :       localhost

create the problem, even it is not used...
It is why i suspect a bug.

and, I say again that changing to : 	mylocalhost
solve strangely the problem ...

I will try with	localhost.mydomain.priv localhost
to see what happens
