#239: Two inconsistent hostname entries in /etc/rc.conf
 Reporter:  bitraptor         |       Owner:        
     Type:  defect            |      Status:  new   
 Priority:  minor             |   Milestone:        
Component:  Installer         |     Version:  8.0-RC
 Keywords:  rc.conf hostname  |  
 Fresh install leaving two inconsistent hostname entries in /etc/rc.conf:
 hostname="pcbsd" at beginning of file, hostname="pcbsd-nnnn" (nnnn some
 number) at the end of file under "#Auto enabled NICs from pc-sysinstall".
 /etc/hosts uses pcbsd-nnnn[[BR]]
 This situation leads to a parsing error of pf.conf resulting in packet
 filter not beeing able to load the rules[[BR]]
 p.s. before committing the install I went back some steps to modify a
 setting, don't know whether the problem also arises when going straight
