Package: libc6-bin
Version: 2.11.3-3
Severity: important 

Using the function getpwuid() in my application, resulted in a memory leak. The minimal test case is this: 
$ cat  c.c
#include <pwd.h>
main() {
        struct passwd *q = getpwuid(geteuid());

$ gcc c.c && valgrind --leak-check=full ./a.out

The bug is described here: 

The fix is here:  

Since this is fixed only in glibc v2.16, and debian squeeze is using 2.11 and wheezy uses 2.13 it would be great if this could be fixed also Debian stable and testing.
