Tlog appears to disallow root logins at the console when LDAP is disconnected (investigate)

Description

On a system where LDAP has previously been connected, when it is subsequently disconnected, tlog appears to be preventing the root user from logging in at the console.

When root is removed from /etc/security/tlog.users, the user can login without issue.

Determined tlog-rec-session -l fails when host name cannot be resolved. Was able to workaround the issue by either adding the local host to the /etc/hosts file or adding "myhostname" to the end of the "hosts:" line in /etc/nsswitch.conf.

The latter option, adding "myhostname" in the /etc/nsswitch.conf file, was recently added to the simp-simp module so the issue shouldn't be a problem going forward.

Submitted ticket https://github.com/Scribery/tlog/issues/269 to the upstream project for tracking.
