I reported elsewhere that version 2.3.999.2-11 (glibc-2.4) seems to work
fine, and Uwe reported that libc6.1_2.5-1_alpha.deb is working also. If
for some reason people require glibc-2.3, they will have to retrieve the
sources for the stable package and apply the appropriate workaround patch
(for the defunct processes issue).
I know (and use) the newer versions of glibc - I would just rather that
to use a newer version instead of being required to get something from
testing or unstable.
(and some organizations might have a "stable"-only policy).
