Package: libc6
Version: 2.2.5-11.5

'getent aliases' shows all the aliases. Then, instead of exiting, it 
starts eating memory. Nothing is output to screen. All memory (256M) is 
eaten up in a few seconds, then all swap is taken out as fast as the 
disk can write.

It works fine with a default /etc/aliases file (with only the system 
users in it), but with our /etc/aliases the above happens. The 
/etc/aliases file itself seems to "work"; newaliases does not complain, 
and we use it in a running postfix system, no problems afaik.

Other getent commands (passwd, group) work fine. Our /etc/passwd is 
somewhat big, 731 lines in 57656 bytes.

I have attached our /etc/aliases. I am not sure what other configuration 
is relevant to this. /etc/nsswitch does not have an entry for the 
aliases database (and has not been changed from the defaults).

This is woody with libc6-2.2.5-11.5. On a sid with libc6-2.3.2ds1-12 the 
problem does not exist.

Kernel is custom compiled from kernel-source-2.4.18. Tested on different 
machines with same results (PII-350/256M, PIII-600/256M, PIII-733/256M; 
all running same libc6 packages, but slightly different kernels).

These bugs are tagged as woody, because they're well-known problems
and for keeping open to come to light what the problem is.  However,
as you know, sarge was released.  Our stable version was moved from
woody to sarge.  It's high time to close old woody's bugs that are
still open.  Now I close these bugs.  If you have any objections to
close them, please reopen and let us know your trouble.
