Glibc 2.12 segfaults under certain conditions

Hi all,

I need help to understand whether report or not this bug to my
distribution bug tracker or the glibc one.

My distribution in Arch linux;
This is my architecture:
Linux 2.6.34-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Aug 11 00:23:15 CEST 2010 x86_64
AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 920 Processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

The issue i've found is when you have such /etc/nsswitch.conf under
certain circumstances (please note the winbind and wins keywords)
# Begin /etc/nsswitch.conf

passwd: files compat winbind
group: files compat winbind
shadow: files

publickey: files

hosts: files dns wins
networks: files

protocols: files
services: files
ethers: files
rpc: files

netgroup: files

# End /etc/nsswitch.conf

When I have the samba deamons stopped, some application crashes, for
example /usr/bin/passwd and /usr/bin/xterm:
xterm[5722]: segfault at 7fffd6a2d7bf ip 00007f46abf6a068 sp
00007fffd6a21e80 error 6 in[7f46abf64000+c000]
passwd[14613]: segfault at 7fff7e587cff ip 00007f9db47a1068 sp
00007fff7e5823d0 error 6 in[7f9db479b000+c000]

A generated backtrace for the second row:
(gdb) backtrace 
#0  0x00007f83eff66068 in ?? () from /lib/

#12 0x00007fff744fa8fe in ?? ()
#13 0x0000000000000000 in ?? ()

Should I report this issue to my distribution or to the glibc bugzilla?
