nss_dns.so doesn't exist because the dns nameservice is handled
by libc internally. What you see looks like the libc code searching
for an nss module.
17068 1 edm GIO fd 2 wrote 38 bytes
"Shared object \"nss_dns.so.0\" not found"
is strange, because libc doesn't print out such a message. Also,
the code should fall back to read /etc/hosts. I can only guess
that the edm program (maybe the libLog.so) itself searches
for nss modules.
