I don't think that's accurate description. glibc resolver will not be used only
if mdns4 lookup succeeded but it was determined for sure that this hostname
does not exist. If the hostname is out of scope, avahi not functional or
whatever, UNAVAILABLE will be returned instead of NOTFOUND and dns will be
still used.

It is not clear to me how does this interact with the DNS changes in glibc
though and how could this have broken.

Stephan, do you have some further insights wrt. _being_ able to reproduce this
bug?
