glibc 2.3.1-1 needs restarting network services

We debian-glibc maintainer team got some reports and complaints about
upgrading glibc 2.3.1-1 package, so please read this if you use this
new one.

After upgrading libc package, then please stop-and-start network
services/daemons, because name service switch is changed in glibc 2.3.

ex) inetd
	/etc/init.d/inetd stop
	/etc/init.d/inetd start

Be careful that doing '/etc/init.d/inetd restart' has no meaning.
We plan to release glibc 2.3.1-2 soon, it warns and restarts services.

In addition, we got some reports that java, wine, and mzscheme do
not work on glibc 2.3.1. They call libc internal functions that are
not exported and not guaranteed to use through the different glibc
versions, so please fix their packages.
