Bug#323352: nscd segfaults when persistent database files are not available (seemingly)

	I should not this doesn't happen on my testing machines
with libc6 2.3.2.ds1-22.  I diff'ed the standard nscd.conf
between the two versions and aside from additional comment junk,
the apparent problems seem to be these:
>       persistent              passwd          yes
>       shared                  passwd          yes
>       persistent              group           yes
>       shared                  group           yes
>       persistent              hosts           yes
>       shared                  hosts           yes

	So persistent database files were not enabled in
2.3.2.ds1-22 but are in 2.3.5-3, yet the installation scripts do
not bother creating /var/db/nscd when it doesn't exist.
Seemingly nscd does not fail gracefully upon trying to delete a
cache entry in a file which does not exist in the first place.
