I now tried this without success. I have

  passwd:         compat pgsql [NOTFOUND=return] db
  group:          compat pgsql [NOTFOUND=return] db

in nsswitch.conf and I ran `nss-updatedb pgsql`, but futex deadlock
remains. Only nscd "fixes" this.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
