Your leafnode version has been tampered with, the original version does
not print "RK", lacks the FQDN tag, and would not start up or print a
"200" banner with "localhost.localdomain".

Does your leafnode version state that it is a modified, unofficial
version, and does it state that the original author should not be
pestered with bug reports? If not, that is a violation of the GPL that
some parts of the code use.

Note that you *MUST* give leafnode a real host name to work with.
See the README-FQDN* files that ship with leafnode, or read online:
