It was not clearly marked as a patch, moreover it looks more like a bad
workaround than a fix. I still have some resistance to apply it for etch r1.
And remember we are humans, we already have problems handling all the
bugs that are coming every days, so we don't have time to read in
details all the bugs that sit in the BTS.

We need that people stop complaining against the glibc maintainers, and
instead complains to the debian-admin guys.
You should already be happy that we manage to get a glibc package for
alpha, without having access to an alpha machine. Don't expect more in
