Bug#722075: libc6: getaddrinfo() sends DNS queries to random file descriptors

Package: libc6
Version: 2.13-38
Followup-For: Bug #722075

Hi there,

I was able to reproduce this bug with only calls to getaddrinfo, as my getaddrinfo opens a NETLINK socket.

Here is a "small" c file leading you easily to the problem : http://pastebin.com/cWZphPK7

It also mean that getaddrinfo is not threadsafe, I think it may.
