I can't reproduce this here with two computers and the latest CVS.
Both name and name.domain works for me.

Yes. It happens if the server doesn't accept the client because it's
not in saned.conf. I'm not sure, if this is the correct way, to reject
the client, however...

Probably your server doesn't know the name of your client without its
domain name? --> /etc/hosts or name server problem?
