Trying to open that file is moot if you don't have nscd installed. They
will always try to open it, for any nss functions, and ignore the failure
if it doesn't not exist.

I don't see these problems, and I haven't heard of anyone else having
these problems. What kernel are you running? What is your network
configuration? Sounds like an isolated local problem, most likely not even
related to glibc. Also saying "broken" is not really very helpful. Exact
error messages, and test cases are important. Neither of which you have
produced, so there is nothing I can go on to help you.
