could you please check out the different klibc versions,
as the diff between 1.4.34-1 and 1.5.7-2 is huge,
so i'd really need more information to pinpoint the trouble.
you seem to be the first reporter to realibale be able to reproduce that.
so a binary search between the two named versions would be really helpful.
you should be able to find them all at
-> deb http://snapshot.debian.net/archive pool klibc
ah and you'd have to downgrade initramfs-tools most probably.
