Bug Description

Running the expert install with D-I, it gives the first part of the IP address I entered during manual network configuration as the recommended hostname. The installer should not allow, let alone recommend, invalid hostnames. See attached screenshot.

I just saw this in a Xen domU install too. I suspect a regression in the IPv6 branch.
