Wasn't that caused by glibc?  If so, their's could leak.  I didn't
notice a patch in their .src.rpm for this particular bug.

I did notice something else interesting though.  It seems they use the
kernel headers from a specific version (2.1.60 in their case) when
building glibc just like we do.  However, they still don't require, or
even encourage, their users to use the same kernel headers.  I guess
they don't care if their users get bitten by an incompatibility. :)
