Changing bug component to glibc. This bug is about nscd, but there is no nscd
component in bugzilla. It appears nscd is being built from the glibc source rpm.#
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2007-09-11 12:35:13 EDT
RHEL4.2 is very old, there have been about 18 important nscd bugfixes since then
in RHEL4 updates, several of them dealt with nscd database growing.
Please retry with RHEL4.5 or RHEL4.6 beta nscd (2.3.4-2.36 or 2.3.4-2.38).
