You're right, I'm sorry about this. It's CentOS6, DHCP setup.
When /etc/hosts is rewritten, it keeps the lines that describe remote
hosts (other but 127.0.0.1), but remove my custom assignments to
127.0.0.1, this is the point I'd like to solve. I have to say that the
aliases to 127.0.0.1 are defined on several lines (127.0.0.1 foo
127.0.0.1 a b c
I've put in /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ a hosts file
with my custom lines in, but this apparently isn't enough.
