Bug#239011: libc6: getpwnam(3) should distinguish between NIS errors and user not found

Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.2.ds1-11
Severity: wishlist

There should be a way to distinguish between NIS errors caused by ypbind 
not running and genuine "user not found" errors.  For example, perhaps
the errno can be set to a different value in such a case.
