Hi all,

I recently ran the summary scripts over my log files to get some
idea of who's doing what, and noticed that client names are
reversed, so for example I get:

showing up in the logs. This is not overly helpful since all the
machines in our lab start with nsp.

It's an easy enough problem to fix, I suspect I just need to remove
the call to rev_fqdn in the script, but I am more interested in
knowing why this is the case, and fixing the source of the problem
rather than kludging.
