I think this falls under resolver overhaul. For a short-term
workaround I'd recommend either changing /etc/services to use separate
lines rather than aliases or applying your own local patch. I don't
want to spend time reviewing patches for code that's about to be
highly refactored/overhauled though (and maybe you don't want to write
it either) so the first option may be the best/easiest for everybody.
