This is a completely different bug than the one reported. More to the
point it is one I can deal with.

Please understand the "emacs core dumps" is not equivalent to "emacs will
not upgrade".

This is not a problem for me ;-)

What I can never keep straight is which to use in this case Conflicts or
Depends? From what I know, Conflicts (with libc5 versions) is probably
more appropriate than Depends (with libc6 version).

I'll see if I can't add this during this weekend's build.
