Hi,
it is mandatory for me because I do not have the short name in
/etc/host, only the long name.
i.e.
192.168.13.1	
not
192.168.13.1	   test1

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

No we do not use 127.0.0.1 neither localhost for a node name.

I have something like

192.168.13.1	
192.168.13.2	
...

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

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

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

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

regards
