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'.

My system:
Linux 2.4.1
RH 7.0.99 (fisher)

$ dig @name.ufl.edu www.ufl.edu
Segmentation fault
$ host name.ufl.edu
name.ufl.edu. has address
$ dig @ www.ufl.edu

; <<>> DiG 9.1.0 <<>> @ 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

Any ideas?
