I got a few advices. The combination of them, helped me to
fix the problem. The problem existed only on machines
In the original /etc/hosts the "loghost" entry was an alias
for the real hostname and not for the loopback address
127.0.0.1. This changed when I installed patch 101945-13.
After rebooting the machine the problem was still there. So
I changed the entry in nsswitch.conf:
hosts: nis [NOTFOUND=return] files
hosts: files nis [NOTFOUND=return].
This was the solution.
Many thanks to
