It's a shame Ubuntu can't get hostname from DHCP server. It's 2010. Bug is almost three years old.
But before I read the comments I didn't realize that X server may be affected by hostname change.
Any thoughts how can this be handled? I really want this fixed.

I don't use NetworkManager, for me networking script is preferable.
I read on some forum that people just use another dhcp client to get things working. Won't it be better to ship Ubuntu with fully working DHCP client?

Hope to see some move in right direction

hostname supplied by dhcp server is not used
