[Samba] bug in samba?

So, comming back on the never ending resolving issues. 
Now im not a coder, but when we look at this example..
To draw another parallel, you seem to want the output of the command hostname --fqdn (which depends on the resolver), while others want hostname .

getfqdn seems to return a different result than gethostname if the hostname of the machine is an alias.

For example if I have this in /etc/hosts and with some python testing. localhost localhost.localdomain localhost2 localhost2.localdomain2 mypersonaldomainname.tld
python -c 'import socket; print socket.getfqdn()'
gives localhost.localdomain
python -c 'import socket; print socket.gethostname()'
gives mypersonaldomainname.tld
so how does samba get the hostname?
