Yeah, it is, and I can't fathom why.  I had to change it to get Condor to work on one Debian machine I was playing with.  I'm sure they have their reasons, but to me it just seems broken.

Likewise, Red Hat by default puts the hostname on the line, which also breaks Condor.

Editing /etc/hosts seems like the right way to fix it.  I think the only alternative would be a Condor option to force binding to a specific interface or IP, instead of relying on the hostname.

The only reason this doesn't break more software is most daemons bind to, so they listen on *all* interfaces, regardless of how the hosts file is set up.
