Bug#616171: nsswitch settings change this

In my original report I had the following in nsswitch.conf:

group:    compat

If I change this to:

group:    compat nis

then both calls to getgrouplist in my sample program return the correct number of groups whether nscd is running or not. I have also noticed that with group set just to "compat" with nscd turned on, that sometime nscd loses the NIS groups and just reports the local groups. I have to stop nscd, delete the cache files in /var/cache/nscd, and start nscd again to fix this.
