Subjectresolver calls in libc-5.4.13

I'm not sure if this is appropriate to this list, but i'll ask anyways.
After upgrading from libc-5.3.12 to libc-5.4.13, i'm having problems with
network programs and non fully qualified hostnames. For example, if
'search foobar.com' is in my /etc/resolv.conf and i execute 'telnet
erf.foobar.com' it works fine. If i 'telnet erf', telnet dumps core. The
same happens with ftp, ncftp, and ssh. The problem goes away if i
downgrade the libc's back to 5.3.12. The problem also does not occur if
the host is in my /etc/hosts file. The box is an i486 running redhat 4.0.
and the 5.4.13 libc's were locally compiled (not a binary distribution).
Anyone have any ideas or possible fixes?

Thanks,
Roy.
