Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.1-5
Severity: grave

libc6 should conflict with wine (<< 0.0.20021007-1) because earlier wine
packages don't work with glibc 2.3 (see #165323). Technically the usage
of __libc_fork was a bug in Wine. Without a conflict in libc6 many people 
doing a partial upgrade from Debian 3.0 to Debian 3.1 will have a new
libc6 together with an old version of wine installed which will result in
a non-working Wine. A conflict in libc6 is the only possible solution to
avoid this.

If there are other packages with a similar problem similar conflicts are

I set the severity to "grave" since from a user's point of view the new
libc6 package breaks wine. If you disagree feel free to lower the severity.

I would be really worried that if we did this that we'd be forced to
conflict with every package that at some version relied on undefined
behaviour in glibc.  Sadly, I don't think there's a solution to this
that wouldn't result in just as much grief being caused.

Closing this bug.
