I just downloaded 2.1.12 (what we were running before) and verified that it's
set as config_servername and not pulled from hostname in that version, so at
some point it did change.  So I guess the question now is, did it change for a
good reason :>  And how do I get this machine to advertise a different
hostname than what comes up with gethostname()
