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.
