Maybe I did not express myself really well. Anyway I said "I guess". It's
"unstable" after all. Please accept my apology for not warning people that
their system might break.

Can't you downgrade again?

Btw. I've just upgraded libc6 from stable to unstable:

tpo@petertosh:~$ dpkg -s libc6 |grep Version
Version: 2.3.1-8

Everything still works - even java:

tpo@petertosh:~/src/_java$ javac hello.java
tpo@petertosh:~/src/_java$ java HelloWorldApp
Hello World!

tpo@petertosh:~/src/_java$ dpkg -s j2sdk1.3|grep Version
Version: 1.3.1-1
