Thanks for the suggestions. That's right, I'm not using DHCP.
I searched through /etc and /usr/local/etc for calls to hostname and for the string www.mydomain.com and all I found was a call to the command "hostname" in /etc/rc.network and my setting of the hostname variable in /etc/rc.conf. After perusing /etc, apparently rc.network is called by /etc/rc after sourcing rc.conf and this is how the hostname in /etc/rc.conf becomes the hostname of the machine. So that appears to be fine. Perhaps another tack, what is the last script executed during boot up? If I add a line like "/bin/hostname www.mydomain.com" to /etc/rc.local should this force the hostname change?

I understand DHCP setting the hostname, which you are not using. I understand DNS or /etc/hosts reporting the old name on the network, but it should not effect hostname. I would look for the old name: # grep -r mydomain.com /etc --Mark Tinguely
