unwanted loading of libnss_nis.so in etch

open("/lib/tls/i686/cmov/libnss_nis.so.2", O_RDONLY) = 4

Below is the contents of my /etc/nsswitch.conf.  This should mean that 
libnss-nis.so is not loaded, however an strace of "ls -l" shows the above 
line (an strace of "ls" with no parameters doesn't).

Why would libnss_nis.so be loaded?

When I chmod 0 /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libnss_nis.so.2, /lib/tls/libnss_nis.so.2, 
and /lib/libnss_nis.so.2 "ls -al" still works so it seems that libnss_nis.so 
is not actually doing any good.
