Package: libc6
Version: 2.9-4
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

This problem is with libc6 2.9-4, althogh my system shows below it's 
using 2.7-18. I downgraded to avoid the problem.

After upgrading to 2.9-4 most programs on my system are no longer able 
to resolve dns addresses, when connecting to the internet via dhcp with 
a dsl connection.

"aptitude update" returns this error for every repository: "Err 
http://security.debian.org testing/updates/contrib Translation-en_US
Could not resolve 'security.debian.org'"

Evolution can not send emails, the gnome weather panel applet cannont 
retrieve information online, etc. Although iceweasel continues to work 

Upon suggestion from another user, I found that if I configure my system 
with a specific numerical dns server address, for example from opendns, 
this serves as a work around. But if the dns server is just the name of 
my ip (which is the way dhcp configures it) then the problem arises.

   * debian/patches/hurd-i386/local-tls-support.diff: fix typo in tlsdesc.sym.
   [ Aurelien Jarno ]
   * debian/po/de.po: fix German translation.  Closes: bug#519612.
   * Update French debconf translation, by Christian Perrier.  Closes: #519662.
   * any/local-disable-gethostbyname4.diff: disable unified lookup for
     getaddrinfo(). While unified lookup fix the problem of DNS servers simply
     dropping AAAA requests, it breaks lookup with even more broken DNS servers
     only returning a broken AAAA answer. As it seems the second type of broken
     DNS concerns more users, let's revert to the old behaviour.  Closes:
   * any/submitted-getaddrinfo-lo.diff: correctly handle the lo interface and
     associated addresses when checking for native connection.  Closes:
   * debian/control.in/libc: change -dbg packages to section debug.
   * debian/control.in/main: update Standards-Version to 3.8.1:
     - debian/local/etc_init.d/glibc.sh: move set -e out from the shebang line.
     - debian/debhelper.in/nscd.init: exit successfully if the daemon was
       already running.
   * debian/debhelper.in/nscd.dirs: remove /var/run/nscd directory.
