Bug#221850: libc6: resolving broken since ds1-10

Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.2.ds1-10
Severity: important

Several applications which depend either upon /etc/hosts or upon proper resolving of filesystem paths accross a
connection have started failing, since a few days:

1) The stanza 'scp /path/to/file remote:/path/to/' no longer works.
2) NFS mounting from 'remote:/path' no longer works; I end up having to specify 'remote.domain:/path'.
3) Hotway (the Hotmail-to-POP3 gateway) no longer succeeds in fetching mail.

All those things used to work just fine, until about last weekend. They no longer do. 

Since resolving is largely dependant upon libc6, I have to conclude that the sliding of 2.3.2.ds1-10 into testing is
what causes those failures.
