	If /var/yp/bindings/<domain>.ypservers exists (as setup by 'ypinit
	-c'),  ypinit will just hang. If the file's removed, everything works
	just fine. (The usual NIS setup steps are OK - domainname etc.)
	This is on 1.5_ALPHA2/i386.

	ypinit -c
	enter your nis servers
	start rpcbind etc
	ypbind <- hangs
	rm /var/yp/binding/<domain>.ypservers
	ypbind <- works
