Well, I believe I found out that the problem is not in the nsswitch.conf
file, it's inside the getaddrinfo() function. There are some bugs getting in
and out of the code the last months, they are reported at glibc bug tracking
I can't put this into production mode with this kind of bug
catching&loosing, so I'm back to private static IPv4 addresses.

I hope that the glibc maintainers fix the bugs soon an definitely.

Thank you all for the tips.

Best regards,
Ernesto Silva.
