You misread, this is not between etch and sarge because this is a fresh 
etch install. On etch nscd crash just after corrupting its database from 
time to time. Then when your restart it with the corrupted db it crashes 
after few seconds, the only way to start it again is to clear the cache 
and it will work for few days.

The only workaround available is a cron job like :

*/10 * * * *   root   if ! pidof nscd > /dev/null ; then
                      rm /var/db/nscd/* ; /etc/init.d/nscd start ; fi
