Glibc would have replaced the files when you installed your glibc

Are you installing Glibc-2.2.1 on LFS or a newer one like 2.2.3 that
slackware uses too? If not, try compiling glibc-2.2.3 (use the
installation instructions from the CVS version of the book) and see if
bash works better with that. Downgrading to a slightly older Glibc
version may have caused bash to 'misbehave' if you will. Yes, even a
static binary still depends on the shared libnss files to obtain the
location of the password database (ie: /etc/passwd) among other
