Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2008-08-14 20:46:35 EDT
2.8-3 is not the latest F9 glibc (2.8-8 is and had a bunch of nscd fixes).
Please test the latter.
Comment 2 Martin Nagy 2008-09-11 12:17:45 EDT
Using 2.8-8 for about a month now and I didn't see this behaviour. Please close this bug report. I will reopen if I run into it again. Thanks.

Fixed in current rawhide release.
