Well, if you are serving multiple domains from multiple ip's and
allowing people to authenticate without specifying a fully quali-
fied realm then that is absolutely a neat feature, but then the
'defaultdomain' should be left unspecified, because it wouldn't
make sense.

If I specify a default domain then I certainly expect that to be
used when no domain is given. And if not then I would expect an
error that pointed me towards reverse host lookup problems.

Secondly, I also had problems when I specified the fully qualified
