Bug#618473: New informations regarding this problem
During the weekend I've created a machine for testing which acts as nis server
(and client of course) and I could see the same problem (without nfs, autofs
and others). So I assume, that the nis package is responsible for this problem.

The nis package is (output from dpkg -l nis):
ii nis 3.17-31 clients and daemons for the Network Information Service (NIS)

I could also see another problem with the nis package:

If I try to do 'dpkg-reconfigure nis' I receive the following message:

dpkg: version 'nis_3.17-18' has bad syntax: invalid character in version number

Hope this helps
