Re: That nsswitch.conf problem

I was having trouble logging in one day after an upgrade, and went to
irc.debian.org #debian and asked... I was told to check
nsswitch.conf, and to see whether `dns' was on the networks line.
Turns out that had nothing to do with why I couldn't log in.
What was going on, I'm not sure. What I do know is that there was a
`fetchmail' running that had, with `ps -wauxf', a `formail -s
procmail' and a `procmail' hanging from it. The `tleds' where not
blinking, and I was seeing no incoming mail, which I log from
.procmailrc to /dev/xconsole where I can watch it come in.
As soon as I cleaned up the `fetchmail' and its children, and the
hung login process on the console tty, I was able to log in again.
So, can someone tell me, in 10 minutes or less, what was going on and
why that happened?
