Postfix determines $myhostname incorrectly

Description of problem:
When I start postfix it wrongly determines the value of the
$myhostname variable as localhost.localdomain although gethostname()
returns real DNS domain name (fqdn btw). I believe the reason is that
reverce DNS record for the postfix' host points to a different name
than gethostname() returns. After disabling
postfix-hostname-fqdn.patch everything started to work as expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Make reverce dns record and host name different, then start postfix.
postfix-2.0.18-4 works OK
I think you have to fix the dns server.
Closing as "NOT A BUG".
