Description of problem:
After adding wins to hosts in /etc/nsswitch.conf, attempting to resolve a wins
address fails. Ping fails with a segmentation fault. This only seems to occur if
the machine name exists on the network. Otherwise, the expected "unknown host"
is output. This bug was not present in Fedora 8.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
samba 3.2.0-1.pre3.9.fc9

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.add "hosts: files dns wins" in nsswitch.conf
2.attempt to resolve a wins hostname
Actual results:
Segmentation fault

Expected results:
The name's IP is resolved correctly

I also found this ubuntu bug report, which seems to be describing the same
problem. A fix was described, but I do not know whether or not this is the same
