Bug#629983: [libc6] I also had this on possible upgrade to 2.13-6

Package: libc6

Version: 2.13-4

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---

Problem is that, whatever be the offending file, the only alternatives are to go ahead anyway or abort ALL upgrades. On my system, six packages are pulled with lib6 upgrades. The mix of new and old will crash out X, for instance.

I got my system going again by downloading testing packages with the live CD and then downgrading to my system after temporarily preventing x-windows start up, i.e. kdm.

The new locales and glibc.doc are apparently OK.

A version of this bug was listed as grave and then withdrawn. Since the partial upgrade will render a (x-window running) unusable, I would upgrade this bug.
