Hi Greg,

Row I get it. I have had the same problem and it has been discussed on
the PostgreSQL mailing lists. This is caused by the parser/tokenizer that is
used by default in PostgreSQL. It only indexes the "full" hostname. There was
someone working to change some of these behaviors in the default parser. In
particular a domain/sub-domain part of a token would also be indexed. I do
not think that it has been finished and I have not seen any recent discussions.
