NetworkManager cannot change hostname

In previous versions of openSUSE (by default), enabling the NetworkManager allowed me to switch from “hardware address” to “Host Name”.

Hardware Address for eth0: CPE0xxxxxxxx-CM000xxxxx

Host Name: opensuse

In openSUSE 11.2 - by simply enabling the NetworkManager, I was able to switch from the default hardware address of eth0 to the hostname.

In openSUSE RC1 it no longer works.

Could be a bug?

Cheers!

Follow Up

I discovered that unchecking “Change Hostname via DHCP” allowed me to see the Hostname. However, it also includes Hostname.Domain Name.
