Nothing is using libc6-sparc64 though.
OK, well, since it's easier to upgrade libc6 than it is to downgrade to
stable, that's what I tried, and it did seem to fix the problem. Sounds
like it's time for a bug report on libc6 2.3.1-16.
Thanks for all of your help.
You might try libc6 2.3.2-1 before filing a bug report. Just to save
some folks some time.
That's what I installed (it is in unstable now, apparently, or at least
apt thought so). Seems to work OK -- at least, grep works and I can
boot without incident. :) I hadn't noticed any other program triggering
the particular issue in libc.
Glad things are working for you again.
Me too. :)
