How was the machine in question set up? 

Was ypbind appropriately attached to a server? 

Was this a straight 2.1AS machine, or did it have some Quarterly Updates installed?

Any other information about the machine on which this was run would be
appreciated, as I would like to try to reproduce it.

Cluster services too unstable on our hardware; without cluster, NIS is no 
longer needed.  Changed to low priority as a result.
