Matthias, we repeatedly saw such report, and we everytime closed such
requests. The problem is every glibc package version has different
glibc cvs base because we update frequently from the latest upstream
cvs. So we can't guarantee the locale behavior of glibc.

Well, however, I've recognized this is problem. One idea is "Depends:
libc6 (>= 2.3.1-17)" or something, I modify such way. The reason
"2.3.1-17" is that this version is synchronized and provided on all
archs. Anyone complaints this change?
