Yes, I experienced the same thing.  Philippe's discussion of the
problem is interesting, but nothing I tried on nsswitch.conf worked.
My best solution so far is not that good: replace the route command
with the old netbase_2.16 version.  Though everything works OK now, I
guess I gotta compare the route.c's to figure out the RIGHT way to do
this. :)

Anyway, thanks for any further tips and for making this such a great
mailing list. :)
