I just confirmed.... The Command Line "hostname" application
does indeed return the TCP/IP hostname... In this case the
DHCP assigned hostname...
But system_profiler does indeed for Local_host_name return the
Sharing pref. Plane machine name....
Since I'm reading that information anyway, that works nicely...
(But I would swear that I had checked that earlier...)
