That I have tested it on Linux but not on Solaris.
On Linux works perfectly so I think the change is worth being in anyway.
As even if on Solaris local files are not usable for netgroups on Linux
are and this patch will be ok anyway.
On OS where local netgroup files does not work, innetgr will simply
return an error and the function will return False (as it were doing
before after the domain check).
