Thanks for digging out the problem that fast!  The Debian changelog of libc6
says that the package contains the "If it ain't broke, you're not tryin'"
release.  So I think the maintainer is mentally and physically prepared for
a seriously broken package and a timely update.  Let's hope for the best.
