Whenever I use dig, host, or nslookup and specify a nameserver other than the default, I get a Segmentation fault. But it only happens if I use FQDN rather than IP address for the server specification. I tried strace, but it didn't really help me. It produces a core file, but I'm not experienced in corefile analysis either; completely clueless what to do after 'gdb dig core'.
RH 7.0.99 (fisher)
$ dig @name.ufl.edu www.ufl.edu
$ host name.ufl.edu
name.ufl.edu. has address 18.104.22.168
$ dig @22.214.171.124 www.ufl.edu
; <<>> DiG 9.1.0 <<>> @126.96.36.199 www.ufl.edu
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:
I found something about this in Redhat's bugzilla system, and the engineer's advice was "upgrade your glibc". Well, I can't find a more recent glibc, and there are no updates in the fisher tree.
$ rpm -q glibc
