Not yet, but will try ...

In the mean time, i want to report an installation problem for
execution hosts (with ignore_fqdn=false and default_domain=none).

The installation script "util/install_modules/inst_execd.sh" always
remove the domain part of the host name; which looks wrong, as it
check for dots a little later to eventually append the default domain,
if exists.

This hostname is not known at qmaster as an administrative host.

Real hostname of this machine:                     raclette-05.calcul.pasteur.fr
Aliased hostname (if "host_aliases" file is used): raclette-05.calcul.pasteur.fr
Default domain ("none" means ignore):              none
Ignore domain names:                               false

The resulting hostname is:              =========> raclette-05

njoly at raclette-05 [adm/sge]> ./utilbin/lx24-amd64/gethostname -all
Hostname: raclette-05.calcul.pasteur.fr
SGE name: raclette-05.calcul.pasteur.fr
Host Address(es): 

I checked that the attached patch fix that problem.
