I had a lot of trouble with the hosts.allow/deny stuff when there
were multiple names for the same IP. It apparently picks one at random
in a reverse lookup of the name, and if it doesn't match the name
you gave in the file, it complains. I resorted to using IP addresses
(which means I have to change when the IP changes - sort of a pain,
but it reduces the log clutter :-).
