Due to an error when trying to recover, I get a menu giving me several options, one of which is to view the log. If I try, it gives me an error. Turns out that it's trying to show me a logfile that has my server's FQDN instead of shortname. 

I think the shortname is what's supposed to be used (conf/default.conf sets HOSTNAME to "$(hostname -s)"). But it seems skel/default/etc/scripts/system-setup has this line: 

(1) less /var/log/rear/rear-`uname -n`.log;; 

I think it should be using $HOSTNAME instead of `uname -n`.
