All the entries in the NIS database are handled automagically. It
*shouldn't* need to be manually edited for any reason.

The problem is a bit deeper than that. txc's key in auto.home got
cut off part way though. There were two users after him in
auto.home, neither of them existed according to ypmatch. I've
rebuilt the NIS database and things seem ok, for the moment.
I've been playing around with the delete user script of late. There
may still be some bugs in it.
