Is that what your system picks up?
Try the "hostname" command, it should print armadillo.

I think the machine might have difficulties qualifying the hostname this
way. "armadillo.piggo.dyndns.org" and "armadillo" have to be on the same
line, like this, with the fully qualified version first, then the
shortnames:   localhost armadillo.piggo.dyndns.org armadillo dns mail www news

It's supposed to work in leafnode-2, too. There's a bug however that
prevents it from working properly. New snapshot in a minute.
