Oh yes. I've just checked with him, and he is stuck waiting for a bug in
glibc to be fixed. For those of you playing along at home, it is Debian
Bug #201221 (http://bugs.debian.org/201221)
| Debian Bug report logs - #201221
| Bug in dlopen/dlclose leads to segfaults with kdecore
| Package: libc6
| Version: 2.3.1-17
| Severity: serious
| Justification: The release manager told me to do so
| A bug in libc6 has been discovered a while ago that gets triggered in
| combination with kdecore. If a program does a dlopen(), dlclose() and
| then again dlopen() on kdecore, it will segfault. From what I know,
| this bug has been fixed in the last libc6 upstream release, 2.3.2.
