Make sure you have nscd enabled.
Excuse the ignorance, what is nscd, is that Netsaints Console Monitor?
What does it do? But I have no nscd process running.
nscd is a caching daemon that caches certain lookups (man nscd). There are
alternatives to nscd that can also be investigated.
System Administration Commands nscd(1M)
nscd - name service cache daemon
/usr/sbin/nscd [-f configuration-file] [-g] [-
e cachename, yes | no] [-i cachename]
nscd is a process that provides a cache for the most common
name service requests. It starts up during multi-user boot.
The default configuration-file /etc/nscd.conf determines the
behavior of the cache daemon. See nscd.conf(4).
