Hmmm... I'd point the finger at realplayer's interaction with glibc2 --
i'm running potato with 2.2.3 same version of realplayer and no problems.
it's quite likely that realplayer uses unpublished bits of glibc2 that
have been eliminated from glibc2.1, tripping up realplayer. however, i'm
guessing. unfortunately I'm not sure if there's a way of downgrading to
2.0.7. i'd be careful.
-thomas, who's not upgrading to glibc2.1 for at least 2 months.
