Short version: I can confirm that bug under linux, but the patch breaks
nis module on solaris.

Linux machine is:
Linux malhar 2.2.16-3smp #1 SMP Mon Jun 19 17:37:04 EDT 2000 i686 unknown

with python version from recent CVS. I see the reported bug and the
suggested patch does fix the problem.

Sparc box looks like this:
SunOS cfa0 5.8 Generic_108528-06 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-Enterprise

using python2.0 source tree. The nis module works out of the box, but
applying the suggested patch breaks it: 'nis.error: No such key in map'.
