Bah, no, it doesn't.. actually looking at the code reveals it does a
reverse lookup on the IP thats being connected to, and if found, uses
everything after the first period. If there's no entry, it uses the
uname of the system, which is presumably whats happening with you. So
really you should set up some correct rDNS for the listening IP.

I hope thats right, or I'm going to look even sillier than I already
do .. :)
