Let's first take a look at what the problem is. If you can reproduce
with zsh-static, then we have a hope of getting an answer for why -3
doesn't solve it in that case.
As far as long term support and static NSS, I would probably have to
refer you directly to upstream. I don't have a good answer, but I
suspect it's just one of those platform quirks. =(
learning from failures is nice in theory...
but in practice, it sucks :)
