This shouldn't happen as long as we still have the "+" prepended to
BUILTIN accounts(*).  And, as a matter of fact, I can't reproduce this
with the latest from CVS (== the snapshot you're testing).  Did you exit
your shell and restart it after creating the /etc/nsswitch.conf file as
described in my preliminary documentation?


(*) I'd be grateful for input to the questions I asked in my OP, too.
