Does it really have a tilde? That usually means the file has been edited, and
this is a backup file. Don't you have one without the tilde? If so, is that

By the way, all the files in the rc directories are just (or should be)
symlinks to files in /etc/init.d, so check if you have a complete version of
nscd there, and what this tilde file is pointing to.

The file is in the nscd package, so in the worst case scenario you could just
reinstall that package
