I'm sorry, please be extremely cautious about installing i386 versions of
libc anf libglib2.0. I have confused myself about the ability to install
i386 and amd64 side-by-side in every case. There may be some cases where
you do not want to do this.
Your instinct about installing the 4.0 may be sound; I simply don't know
your system well enough to make that kind of judgment.
