Whee, indeed. I just replaced my hosts with a link to the copied content.
No info from getent anymore...

Aargh! Mea maxima culpa :(
Always watch out for typos. Of course it doesn't look for a file called

So with proper naming of the link, getent follows it and uses the linked

Were the permissions of the linked file correct?
