Bug#165915: libc6: Upgrade may break kdm?

Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.1-3
Severity: normal

  I'm not sure that this is related to libc6 rather than, say, pam.
Someone should confirm this.

  I recently upgraded libc6 remotely on a system which uses kdm as
its login manager.  After the upgrade, I was unable to log in from kdm,
although ssh and text-mode console logins still worked.

  In the log were these messages:
Oct 22 12:39:18 blargenaut kde(pam_unix)[1022]: check pass; user unknown
Oct 22 12:39:18 blargenaut kde(pam_unix)[1022]: authentication failure;
logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=:0 ruser= rhost= 
Oct 22 12:39:21 blargenaut kde(pam_unix)[1022]: check pass; user unknown
Oct 22 12:39:45 blargenaut last message repeated 8 times

  Unfortunately, I upgraded pam and libc6 simultaneously, so I don't
know which one is the culprit (or whether both together are, or whether
the problem is from some other piece of software entirely)

[UPGRADE] libc6 2.2.5-15 -> 2.3.1-3
[UPGRADE] libpam-modules 0.76-5 -> 0.76-7
[UPGRADE] libpam-runtime 0.76-5 -> 0.76-7
[UPGRADE] libpam0g 0.76-5 -> 0.76-7
