Typo in /etc/nscd.conf

# RPM nscd-2.4.90-2.i386
nscd fails to start due to a typo in the /etc/nscd.conf config file. This
appears to be introduced by bug#177154.
$ grep -C2 auto-prop nscd.conf
# shared <service> <yes|no>
# max-db-size <service> <number bytes>
* auto-propagate <service> <yes|no>
# Currently supported cache names (services): passwd, group, hosts
Appears that the auto-propagate line in the comments section uses an incorrect
comment character. I gather it should be '#' instead of '*'. This causes
/etc/init.d/nscd to fail on startup.
Should be fixed in glibc-2.4.90-3 in rawhide.
