Patch is OK, but I think that "Check /etc/hosts." part of the error
message may be confusing.

Hostname with mixed-case we are complaining about doesn't have to be
read from /etc/hosts. It may be passed for example by --hostname
parameter or set on a machine by `hostname` command.

Updated patch with the Check part removed.
