[nos-bbs] domain suffix adds even with periods..

Once again I'm doing battle to get JNOS to deliver SMTP messages to
itself for mailbox posting.   Seems like this comes up with every
installation.   Sigh.

Anyway, has anybody else noticed a glitch where the "has a period"
logic isn't working?

domain suffix is  wa563

hostname is nwpnos.wa563

The doc for domain suffix says (essentially) " this suffix will be
appended to any name without a period prior to DNS discovery."

My hostname has the period..   When SMTP runs to deliver the local
messaged destined for @nwpnos.wa563, I see the DNS query going out for
"nwpnos.wa563.wa563" which of course returns a bogus openDNS site that
happily ignores the SMTP attempts to its port 25.

My domain.txt file has local entries for  'nwpnos." and
'nwpnos.wa563.'  with the trailing periods.

I finally got it close to working when I set "domain suffix none"

Any thoughts?
