So fixing it, breaks backward compatibility ;-)

This is also my opinion. As soon as some from the 'older' guys who know the history of UNC
better than me say either

1. Hey we need this behaviour that is currently imposed by not setting UNC. Call it XY, or
2. Ups, this is inconsistent, by default it should behave like On/Off/DNS

I am willing to step in and create a patch to do just that.

So far I have your opinion which I read as 2.: Default should be OFF
(I personally would tend to 2.: Default ON).

But as some is usually more than one :-),
I would like to hear an additional (not necessarily another) opinion and then I start running.
