Bug#368326: libc6: LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 no longer works

Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.6-9
Severity: normal

The visualization software Fieldview (www.ilight.com) stops with the
following error message:

symbol errno, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link
time reference

This error appeared even with older versions of libc6 but could be
prevented by setting LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 (last tested with 2.3.6-7).
In #368022 it is suggested that in such cases the software is outdated
or buggy. However, this also happens with the most recent versions. Is
there any chance, that the old compatibility will be restored? I also
read this in the mentioned BTS entry:

"Well since glibc 2.3.6-7, all our "flavours" of the glibc now have TLS
enabled, since it is needed by libstdc++. So I doubt it will work."

Is there any way to disable TLS before running problematic programs?
