	to be more clear:

	openssh 2.2.0 had host name canonicalization in ssh.c:main().

	the code fragment no longer exist in 2.3.0 in any part of the
	code path.  the removal happend around Oct 3 2000, on OpenBSD
	repository with the following change.

	so I can say that the change was intentional, and was made
	between openssh 2.2.0 and 2.3.0.
