Hmm, that's not fully correct. Some things dropped down and surely with sarge, 
one has to follow the security list (e.g. cupsys) and recompile from sid 
which _always_ worked for me.
What I mostly do not understand in this issue: what the f**k do applications 
(e.g. cupsys) have to do with glibc version? Almost all of them surely build 
and run just fine with glibc-2.2.5. But even when having no bugs, they do not 
drop down! This makes ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE because they would get rebuild for 
sarge then and leaving any compiler/glibc issues away from sarge. Instead, 
many rather go for sid, although they probably shouldn't. The release manager 
definitely defeat the reasons for have sarge at all.

Or maybe I did not get the point here...
