I did "reportbug apache2", but the bug was indeed files against

I filed a second bug against wwwoffle (which isn't based on libapr,

Perhaps, but one needs to know precisely which function is failing.
I doubt the libc6 developers know the wwwoffle internals.

I upgraded another machine (kernel and libc6), and this time, that's
spamassassin that was affected (spamassassin was not upgraded between
the two reboots). But again, I don't know whether this is related to
the problems with apache2 and wwwoffle (apparently not a hostname
problem, but still network related). Just in case:
