I haven't been able to see this problem again, but in nsswitch.conf
passwd, shadow and group are all just "files". There's no ldap
anywhere. netgroup and publickey are by default 'nisplus' and a bit
similar for bootparams. automount/aliases 'files nisplus'. So I doubt
LDAP is the cause.
After a lot of hibernate/resume attempts I have sometimes seen weird
stuff (like every command segfaulting) but I hope it's irrelevant for
this specific case.
