Slow login times in Ubuntu 13.10 (not just SSH)

I recently setup a new install of Ubuntu 13.10 for a server and found that a lot of my login times were slow when remotely logging in (and not just via SSH). The culprit turned out to the the /etc/nsswitch.conf file:

This line:
hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns 4 mdns

Should be changed to this line:
hosts: files dns

... to resolve the issue
