change dancer-ircd hostname

I'm running a dancer-ircd installed via apt on debian (latest available version). Now, I set it up and it's running good, but if I connect with mIRC to the server the server name is "Debian". I've searched all documentations and configuration files of dancer-ircd for "Debian" but I didn't find it. I also checked the dancer-ircd binary and found the term and as I changed it the server name changed too, but I was unable to change the length of the string, because all offsets were messed up afterwards and I got segmentation faults.
Anyway, does anybody know how I can change the server name of dancer-ircd without compiling it by myself?

-h hostname 
Specify the server name this ircd will be. This should usually match it's primary hostname.

This is more a Dancer question, too, not a Linux one.

Thanks for your answer, unfortunately, I did that, for some reason it's not working.
I'm asking it here because 1. this is the "Linux - Server" forum, and this is a server question, 2. Dancer gives no support at all and 3. here the most people who may know what I can do are.


hostname, ircd
