This issue is on Red Hat Engineering's list of planned work items 
for the upcoming Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.4 release.  Engineering 
resources have been assigned and barring unforeseen circumstances, Red 
Hat intends to include this item in the 4.4 release.

Comment 7 Bastien Nocera 2006-05-09 14:28:05 UTC
No news on the debug information. I guess the problem got fixed after upgrading
nscd. Sorry about the bother.
