Consider the plane nodal cubic $X$ given by the equation $y^2=x^2(x+1)$ over a field $k.$ It is not too hard to show that $Y$ has a finite étale covering $X$ of degree $2.$ One does this in the following manner. Take two copies of the normalization $\pi:\tilde{X} \rightarrow X,$ call them $\tilde{X_1}$ and $\tilde{X_2}$ respectively. The fiber $\pi^{-1}(0)$ of the singularity consists of two points $x_1$ and $x_2.$ Call the corresponding points in $\tilde{X_1}$ by $y_1,y_2$ and the corresponding points in $\tilde{X_2}$ by $z_1,z_2.$ We then glue $\tilde{X_1}$ and $\tilde{X_2}$ along these points, so that $y_1$ is glued along $z_2$ and $y_2$ is glued along $z_1.$ One shows that this is étale without too much pain.

I'm curious, if we instead glue $y_1$ along $z_1$ and $y_2$ along $z_2,$ how would this change the result? Would we still get a non-trivial étale covering?
