Double sigh.

Fortunately for this purpose it only matters that the output from
hostname(1) matches the return from gethostname(2), which in this case
it does. so the test still passes on those platforms:

$ cat /etc/lsb-release
$ ./ssh -o controlpath='%L' -G ::1 | grep controlpath
controlpath server01
$ ./ssh -o controlpath='%l' -G ::1 | grep controlpath
controlpath server01
ok percent expansions
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/dtucker/openssh/regress'
all t-exec passed

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
