Bug#361039: libc6: bad regcomp initialization, fixed upstream

LaMont Jones wrote:
Package: libc6
Severity: serious
Version: 2.3.6-4

After initializing a mutex, regcomp zeros the structure.  On
architectures that have non-zero free lock values (e.g., hppa) this
results in deadlock.

The following patch fixes the problem.
(See http://www.sourceware.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/libc/posix/regcomp.c.diff?r1=1.95&r2=1.96&cvsroot=glibc )

Are you sure of the version against which you reported the bug? This patch is present in the package since the version 2.3.6-4. With it I was able to run the testsuite again.
