Description Marius Larsen Jxhndal 2000-02-04 10:39:13 EST
This is more a user error than it is a bug, but it still made me wipe all
of /etc/rc.d/init.d/ by accident on my company's NIS server. When stopping
ypbind, the command

  rm -f /var/yp/binding/$(domainname)*

is executed. Imagine what happened when I made the incredibly stupid
mistake of setting the NIS domain name to " " (that is one single
space)...

This should be fixed in ypbind-3.3-26 and later.  Thanks for the suggestion.
