Hmm, when I complained about this bug, I saw this problem when I had
the following in /etc/nsswitch.conf:

passwd:         compat
group:          compat

.. and changing it to "nis db files" sped it up considerably. That was
fixed, now compat mode is quite fast, but it looks like something else
got broken in the process.

It's not normal, you might have found a bug in GNU libc.
Thorsten Kukuk (the author of the NIS code) might be able to help you:
