Trailing dot works. On linux systems (e.g. FC4), the plain museum

I am now even more commited to the interpretation that museum needs a
trailing dot to be a FQDN.
Any domain needs a trailing dot; it is just that it becomes obvious
in cases where guessing fails if the FQDN has just one label.
That, or don't guess and just assume every entered domain is a FQDN
unless proven otherwise (i.e. first try to resolve, and only if that
fails try to append .com. and so on).
