Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 434991
glibc reports invalid free for nsswitch binary

lib/nsswitch.c uses yp_get_default_domain to determine the yp domain name. The
pointer passed back apparently should not be passed to free. Glibc spewed an
error about this and terminated the program.

Run the regression test /CoreOS/autofs/bugzillas, subtest bz212249.
