Bug#555105: libc6: segfault when ctrl-alt-F1 and attempt to login

Package: libc6
Version: 2.10.1-5
Severity: important

When I pull up a terminal screen with Ctrl-Alt-Fx and attempt to login 
(root or regular user) I get the following:

"login: segfault at bc43c704 ip b7f4c2da sp bfbeb1dc error 4 in 

and login fails and I am returned to the login prompt. Ie. Ctrl-Alt-Fx 
totally broken.

I have an encrypted home directory which is automatically opened by 
libpam-mount which might have something to do with it (has been known to 
cause secondary login issues).
