The only thin clients where using hostname in a shell at the client
returns the name are those with dhcp reservations defined.  But, as
mentioned, on the i386 system, snapshots work for all thin clients
regardless of whether they know their hostname.  Ping does work
properly. e.g. ping ws001.ltsp works even though ws001.ltsp doesn't
know its hostname so dns is working properly in this respect. After
looking at the source code I think  I'll go in sometime this weekend
and see if I can just use vncsnapshot manually from a shell,
replicating the command that FL_TT is using.
