NDSD process cores every day in NCP Server GetEntryFromDirCache.
Users can no longer log into OES Linux Server.
 A backtrace extracted from an ndsd core dump looks similar to the following:
#0  0x46c56494 in GetEntryFromDirCache () from /usr/lib//nds-modules/libncpengine.so   (gdb) where  
#0  0x46c56494 in GetEntryFromDirCache () from /usr/lib//nds-modules/libncpengine.so
