Wasn't there a bug in libc that was recently fixed? I
seem to recall it had something to do with nsswitch...

The previous commit changed the behavior of nsdispatch() in the
case where an /etc/nsswitch.conf file was present, but could not
be opened (e.g. due to permissions). Previously, the open failure
condition was suppressed, and the built-in defaults were used. In
revision 1.11, however, propagated the open failure causing all
nsdispatch() invocations to return NS_UNAVAIL, and thus many APIs
including getpwnam and gethostbyname unconditionally failed.
This commit restores the previous behavior.
