Thanks very much.
I see that in /etc/nsswitch.conf I have
#passwd:    db files nisplus nis
#shadow:    db files nisplus nis
#group:     db files nisplus nis

passwd:     files ldap
shadow:     files ldap
group:      files ldap

I'll go back to the commented-out version,
and I'm sure that will do the trick.

I'm not sure when I made this change -
I should explain that the computer in question
is my old Dell server, which I stopped using some time ago
as the 2TB disk in it seems sick.
I've resuscitated it to try to get all the data off it.

I was running an openLDAP server on this machine,
and must have edited nsswitch.conf for that.
