setting hostname breaks X login in porteus4.0

(but only for this tty, all other are still showing porteus login. if you press enter without logging in, it refreshes to the correct hostname ...pretty much what happens when slim has it's second attempt.. there's more to this, but i'm at a loss as to how hostname is handled without the 'hostname'...

setting hostname breaks X login in porteus4.0

at the the start up, after the modules are loaded and welcome message, there is a tty login prompt(show briefly before X starts or stops there if cheatcode 3 is used)
what does it show? default is: porteus login: should be: <newhostname> login:
or ctrl+atl+fn to another tty

setting hostname breaks X login in porteus4.0

further test: kde and nvidia driver: now behaves like all the others ie. baulked start (but doesn't mind changing hostname in X) not suggesting drivers per se but there seems to be different outcomes with different driver/DE combos .. i'm interested in this "Display Name: <hostname>:0" what set this...

If yes, which one? good question. i did some tests and for me: all DEs except KDE display this behaviour with modified HOSTNAME.. this machine uses the radeon driver. what difference the nvidia driver could make i have no idea.. and what is different with ...
