My bad... Both the problems above are totally separate issues.  I
supose problems are to be expected when upgrading, but the two I
mention are not this issue and are now resolved.

No idea... But I think that it has gone away now ... even on the "bad"
image.  I did a complete dist-upgrade to testing (rather than the mix
of stable and testing that I was using before) and it is gone.

Conclusion: I saw problems with certain apps (apache-ssl,
courier-imap) that I prematurely determined were glibc problems when
they were configuration issues and dependency problems.

There is still the issue of tar randomly getting messed up, but I
think that the dist-upgrade cured that.  I still have one disk in a
corrpted state if you want me to test something.


You are a mystery as deep as the sea; the more I search, the more
I find, and the more I find the more I search for you.
