    Maybe there is something to prevent that as it could cause very serious duplicate content issues.

    Moreover, I think it's a global bug that affects millions of hosting accounts. Yahoo, for example, many times indexes wrong URLs because of that... In many situations, if I knew your cpanel username, I could link to it instead of your domain to remove your site from search engines..
