Description of problem:
Some update overwrote /etc/nsswitch.conf and lost user's changes.
I had manually changed /etc/nsswitch.conf with:
hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns myhostname
This change was lost during some recent upgrade. glibc is the owner of this file, and was updated at about the right time to be the cause of the problem, but I could not recreate the problem with "yum reinstall glibc"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Lost user's changes to /etc/nsswitch.conf
Minimally, user's changes need to be preserved in a: /etc/nsswitch.conf.rpmsave
