Bug#369536: netgroup: nis in nsswitch.conf causes libc6 to fail and programs like sudo or rpc.mountd to crash

Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.6-9
Severity: important

if in /etc/nsswitch.conf:

netgroup:       nis

then e.g. sudo fails:

vsauer@gelnhausen: ~ > sudo bash
sudo: nss_nis/nis-netgrp.c:78: _nss_nis_setnetgrent: Assertion `len > 0' failed

and rpc.mountd fails with the same error.

If I set

netgroup: files

everything runs okay.
