Okay, here's a non-theoretical scenario:

- nmh installed on shared filesystem, with shared configuration file.
- Client systems are configured with "short hostname".

What's the solution here?  If we do what you suggest, nmh will have a
functionality regression.

I confess, while this situation isn't ideal, we wouldn't even be talking
about it if it wasn't because of one user that had spotty DNS connectivity.
(And like I said in my original reply, it's possible that could get fixed
with a one-line change).
