Do you use LDAP/NIS/etc. or have any userids or UIDs missing from your
passwd file?  Those are the most likely culprit.  While previously
failed lookups would be ignored, it's now using "getent" to try to
resolve them.

Debug mode can be enabled from the config, /etc/sysconfig/nhc, or the
runtime environment by setting DEBUG=1.  It won't give timing info,
though; for that, you might want to use "bash -x /usr/sbin/nhc"
instead.  That should allow you to see where the blocking is

If it turns out to be the fallback code, it's easy enough to make it
disable-able.  :-)

Thanks for the feedback!
