Sorry for not answering yet, I don't had the time to look deeper at
it. In the moment I can only say that your fix is completly wrong and
makes the slowdown the people are speaking here much worser.

The only real solution is: Somebody has to implememt the nis_cachemgr
correct so that not every program has to search again for a server.
