I would say I rely on a well-known "mis-configuration" of my system
rather than a bug. When I noticed it I liked its influence on cyrus and
did not change it. Everything is working as it should when everything
else is setup correctly. Nothing wrong with cyrus. Just use
fully-qualified _hostnames_ where they have to be fully-qualified ;-)
