Hmm, a bug has been introduced in libc6 version 2.24-11+deb9u2, which in
some conditions leave the /etc/ld.so.nohwcap file instead of removing it
just after the upgrade (see bug#883394). One of the condition is to have
libc6-i686 installed (while it can be safely removed), which seems to be
your case.

I consider this bug harmless as it should not deactivate anything now
that the default libc is already i686 optimized. Also I don't see how it
could trigger the issue you described. Anyway better be safe than sorry,
could you please try to create this file with "touch /etc/ld.so.nohwcap"
as root and see if it makes the issue to reappear? Once the test is done
you can then remove it.
