Currently our name_to_fqdn() function does not explore aliases if the
first name it come up with is not the fqdn but a short name.
This may result in a keytab where the fqdn is not the one used by the
For example when the host fqdn is samba.example.com and we are joined to
the domain windom.example.com and the /etc/hosts file has an entry like:
188.8.131.52 samba samba.example.com
This patch try to be smart with hand made /etc/hosts files
Thanks to Seth Elssworth of Quest for pointing out the problem.
