For the record: After reading Sumits reply at bugzilla and this

"In general, the service name is the name of the program used to access the 
service, not the program used to provide the service. This is why the service 
wu-ftpd, defines its service name as /etc/pam.d/ftp." quoted from

I tested it a little bit out:

If you set a hbac-rule with --service=su-l, it will only apply to "su -l" or 
"su -", but not to a simple "su".

If you set a hbac-rule with --service=su, it will apply to "su -l", "su -"and 
a simple "su".

So my assumption is, that applications do try from a specific name, down to the 
general one. This is why "sshd" and "ssh" work. Or is it pam who does this 

Btw: I also think a good list with well known services would be nice, so 
someone who tries to set up wu-ftpd, like the example in the redhat-docu, uses 
"ftp", and not "wu-ftpd". It's just a wish for the upcomming documentation.
