+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1834816 +++
The end*ent functions such as internal_endpwent call into the rest of glibc and other NSS modules, without saving errno around those calls. Since successful function calls can clobber errno, a critical ERANGE error can be masked, and the caller will not retry with a larger buffer, reporting a different error instead.
Verified, the bug has been fixed in glibc-2.28-126.el8
