Actually I don't think this is the same bug. I cannot reproduce
this bug 629899 concerning apache2, while the bug with wwwoffle
has occurred every time since I upgraded to libc6 2.13.

After I looked in the logs, I got this actually for the first time
after I upgraded to libc6 2.13.

I've reported the wwwoffle problem against wwwoffle because apache2
on the same machine doesn't have any problem:


wwwoffle may do something special, and the maintainer could reassign
the bug to libc6 (with a testcase) if it appears that the problem
comes from libc6.

I suggest that you report a bug for the problem you get. If you can
reproduce it, you'll have at least more information than me...
