Hostname Question

Is there any differnce in the way 6.0 resolves
its own hostname compared to 5.2 ?

I just noticed in phpsysinfo the hostname is
being outputted as the IP address ?

# hostname does in fact show the correct 
hostname.domain name of the machine.

I have tried the same version of phpsysinfo
(as I had on 5.2) as well as the most recent 
port and the result is the same. 

I checked rc.conf which is correct.

Its not of great importance but I just was
wondering about it ...
