If so, why don't you say which glibc version you use and whether you
upgraded recently?

I assume a full rebuild (make clean) doesn't fix it?

Don't let the names fool you, these read local /etc/passwd and
/etc/resolv.conf files when there's no such server configured. And
getpwuid() sounds suspiciously like something that would read
/etc/passwd. I've heard there's been some binary incompatibility in this
area of glibc lately (not with applications, but between glibc and the
nss modules (used to access /etc/passwd), so that services would have to
restarted after upgrading glibc, and programs statically linked with an
"old" glibc wouldn't work, with win4lin being a casualty of this).
