I understand this bug resulted from a misconfiguration. Problem is, it's not 
that hard to fall into this situation (the submitter did it, and I did it too), 
and the results are quite severe, like root mails being lost, and not so easy to 
debug for a non-guru.

Couldn't something be done to try to prevent this situation? What about adding 
the value of /etc/mailname to the list of local domains? Either automatically 
and silently (any downside to this?) or at least make it the default value in 
the debconf question about local domains.
