	After recent -current changes (nsdispatch I guess -> category
	lib) nis related /etc/{,master.}passwd entries like


	are no longer handled correctly. Instead you'll get error
	messages like

		# id kilbi
		id: corrupted entry
		id: corrupted entry
		id: corrupted entry
		id: kilbi: No such user

	whereas the global nis entry


	seems to work properly.

	/etc/nsswitch.conf == /usr/src/etc/nsswitch.conf remained
	unchanged (passwd: compat, passwd_compat: nis).
	Try to refer to single nis user accounts in the local
	/etc/{,master.}passwd file via '+username...' entries.
