You haven't responded, nor has anyone else, and the bug's sat idle for
over two weeks.

Voila, it's fixed, so we don't have to worry about it. I'd like it
properly diagnosed and fixed too, but it's not RC if we can work around
all the know cases by adding a single entry to the Conflicts: line.

Narrow the problem down to something small and reproducible and I'm sure
they will.

Please only Cc the bug report or the glibc folks if and when you have
some useful information to add to the bug, not opinions on how important
this problem is.

Thanks in advance.
