I cannot reproduce this with:

Package: libc6
Version: 2.2.5-11.5

After running for 5 minutes, the program still requires a constant VSZ
of 1280k.  Are you using nscd perhaps?

NIS, but no nscd; kernel 2.4.20 SMP; gcc 2.95.4-14. Anything else that might cause it? I don't think we did any changes to /etc/procotols.
setprotoent(1) has no effect.

Now it gets weird: Upon receiving Wolframs email, I checked on another box with Debian stable (No NIS, kernel 2.4.23) and libc6 2.2.5-11.5 and it does not show the bug.

What else might cause this?
