I use dhcp, using "quasi-static IPs" (fixed IP<->mac address mapping) on
my dhcp server.

Wild guess: How does your /etc/yp.conf look like?
Do you have NISDOMAIN set in /etc/sysconfig/network?

On my machines, which are using NetworkMangler,
/etc/yp.conf is the default yp.conf (== everything commented out ==
effectively empty), but NISDOMAIN is set in /etc/sysconfig/network

I.e. my /etc/sysconfig/network looks similar to this:
NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=<myhostname>
NISDOMAIN=<mynisdomain>
