What is a best practice on unix systems for specifying the hostname. 
Long or short form?
I've had problems with short form and decided to go with long form. 
Postfix for instance will balk at a short form hostname if it is not 
explicitly specified in the configuration.
Just wondering what others have settled on.

Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints...
