Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  Spaces are not valid in hostnames. See RFC-1123, Section 2.1 and RFC-952, assumption 1. Hostnames must not contain characters other than those in the class [a-aA-Z0-9.-]. I'm surprised Arch actually allows setting invalid hostnames...
