Re: lib/46111 (yplib will hang forever if no server can be found)
if you have multiple NIS-domains (and servers) blocking forever in the
lib when a domain cannot be reached will hang up any application that
tries to get some information.
We have a NIS-cache-Module integrated into apache, radius, .. for
authentification and/or authorisation and such a situation will lock up
the application, even if only one domain does not work.
So I think this change should be integrated into all future releases.
It is compartible with "previous" bahaviour if you do not explicitly
activate the do-not-hangup-mode.
And we need it here.
But I can add it in "our" version all the time in the future again, if
you decide not to keep it in future releases.

Committed by Christos back in March. Unless there's an explicit
need to, I think we won't bring this into netbsd-6. Let us know
if you need it.
