And I'm one of them. :)
Here's a thought. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this utmp/libc6/libc5
fiasco is something that applies to all (or almost all) Linux
distributions, no? (Or is libc6 a Debianism?)
If everybody in the Linux game is migrating to libc6, then what are the
other piecewise-upgradable distributions (like RedHat) doing to avoid
ugliness like what we're facing?
