I had recently brought on a new peer who also commented on this. It was the 
first of my fifty or so peers to note a problem with it.

i know, i know, i shouldn't use caps in a domain name, but to the best of 
my knowledge, i'm violating no rfc's, just etiquette, in doing so, and it 
*shouldn't* cause any problems, although apparently it is...

everything associated with that name is consistently in caps as above - the 
server's hostname, the dns, all of my entries in my inn configuration.
