I think he meant it was in the "unstable" distribution of debian, i.e. the
development version rather than the released "stable" distribution.

Yes, that's in our bug-tracking system. I don't think it was forwarded to
you (sorry about that, I suspect that's because no-one is actively
maintaining the package any more). I'm glad to see someone else has told you

It's likely to cause problems for debian too (since we also use libc6 in the
development release); I didn't notice anything when I built the package but
I only gave the package the bare minimum of testing.
