glibc-2.3.1: Segfault when nis compiled with "- static"

It is the same problem as in the following post:
 static binary doing getpwuid() or such
      + "passwd: compat" in /etc/nsswitch.conf
      + "- at SOMEGROUP::::::" in /etc/passwd
      = crash.

I am used my compiled version of glibc-2.3.1 on Linux/i386. I am compling
with "-static" and executing my program on the same machine(NIS client with
compat mode). The test program just calls getpwuid, I get a segfault.

I have not be able to see any proper solution while looking at the previous
posts. Upon using gdb, I found that DB_LOOKUP_FCT is called. Here
nss_compat is loaded using dl_open and the address for the function is
nss_compat_getpwuid_r is looked up (nss_lookup_function -> lib_dlsym ->

Then DL_CALL_FCT is called with the function address returned. This in turn
calls dl_mcount from elf/dl-profstub.c:42. Soon, segfault occurs.

 /proc/<pid>/maps shows that the nss_compat has been mapped around the
place for which I get "??" in backtrace after the segfault.

1. Is this a known problem, has it been fixed?
2. I am compling as well as and executing the program on the same machine
with the same glibc-2.3.1?
Any other help or suggestions in zeroing in on the problem would be
