murder hostname resolution

I'm playing around with murder in a test environment. I have an existing
standalone cyrus server which I have converted into a backend server, a
frontend server, and a mupdate master server (all separate boxes).
The problem I'm seeing is that the mailbox list being pushed to the
mupdate master contains only the backend's short hostname, not the fully
qualified hostname. Here is an example:
user.aabya mail1!default aabya lrswipcda
This is a problem when I try to connect through the frontend server
because it is unable to resolve "mail1" to the backend server's hostname.
I checked /etc/hosts and sure enough I had "mail1" listed as 127.0.0.1. I
fixed it like so:
126.96.36.199 mail1.onid.oregonstate.edu mail1
Then I restarted cyrus on the backend, blew away the mailboxes.db on the
mupdate master, and pushed the changes to the mupdate server again.
However, I still see just "mail1" in the mupdate server and the frontend
still fails to resolve the name "mail1" and find the mailbox.
Any suggestions on how I can the backend to push the fully qualified name
out to the mupdate server?
