I thought that might help. Which is why are changing
the default in 3.0.23 :-)

It disables support for setpwent()/getpwent()/endpwent()
functionality. So apps that try to enumerate all users
or groups will break. Running 'id user' will fail. But
running 'id' as the user will work. Most apps just use
getpwnam() or getgrnam() anyways. The NSS interface
is a little too narrow for real searching.
