Teruel, thank you for your test. We have all the information needed and the
rest needs to be gathered by me by hands-on tests on our machines anyway.

To sum up recent development:

I could reproduce the issue both with and without the mdns4 in nsswitch.conf.
The culprit is not there.

Instead, it turns out that within nscd, the initial resolver state has no
nameservers loaded! I'm not sure about the reason, why getaddrinfo() works and
why disabling glibc-2.10-dns-fixpack.diff helps, but I had no time at all to
research based on this discovery yet - unfortunately, before I thought this
patch is completely harmless, and it still appears so to me. :-(

Anyway, taylor-pbaudis-2 mbuild, soon available at is glibc with this patch disabled and
it appears the issue is not reproducible with this mbuild. Please confirm.
