Good thought, but no - this was an issue where the servers names were
changed, or moved - I disremember which. And it came up originally,
because we have one server that's accessed all over campus, at other
Institutes, and some people leave, and their machines go away, repurposed
or surplused, but they're still listed on our exports file.
