Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.1-15

After updating to libc6 2.3.1-15 some programs (I noticed this behavior
in Evolution 1.0.5 and Gabber 0.8.7-2) give a segmentation fault on
startup. I traced it with gdb and it turned out that the function call
in which the segfault occurs is to iconv_close() in libc6. It works fine
with libc6 2.2.5-11.2.

OK, if you have a time to track this and find the problem in glibc,
please resubmit the bug report.  At the present, I close this bug.
