tx38 was an alias for a remote host, not the solaris server. I don't
see what sys-unconfig has to do with the DISPLAY value on the remote
host. When the user logs into another server, where the /etc/hosts file
is empty except for the loopback and the server itself, the DISPLAY
value is correctly set to smc38:0.0, not tx38:0.0.
Both servers use /etc/nsswitch.conf with "hosts: file dns"; the difference
is that on the server complaining about the display, /etc/hosts contains
an smc38 entry, while on the other the hostname is provided by the DNS.
