Unless I'm missing something, this post might better be directed to
debian-user rather than debian-devel.

I don't think so.  There was a problem with apt/dpkg installing
libc6 from unstable.  This is not an ordinary user problem.  In
any event, installing libc6 manually with dpkg seems to have
solved the problem.  It doesn't explain why I got a machine lock-up,
though or why apt didn't recover gracefully.
