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.
