Host name resolution problem

| I'm running v3.2.1 on FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE-p13 with perl-5.6.1_15 and
| apache-2.0.48_3.
| Everything works well with the exception of using FQDN in the configuration
| i.e.,
| This is what I originally configured:
| 	  Host "SH-ACIUS" {
| 		  hostname:
| 		  Service Ping
| 	  }
| But end up having to use:
| 	  Host "SH-ACIUS" {
| 		  hostname:
| 		  Service Ping
| 	  }
| I have:
| 1.      Placed an entry in etc/hosts
| 2.      ensured that there is an entry in the primary DNS zone with PTR

is it only this one hostname that isn't working or is it
all hostnames that don;t work?

argus 3.2.1 uses the standard gethostbyname function to do lookups,
so I can't imagine what could be wrong.
