Just my $0.02 here.  I had this annoyance to and eventually gave in and
upgraded to libc6...  while I guess other people had problems, I simply
followed the instructions from the Mini Howto and had a grand total of one
problem, some slight utmp corruption (which is hardly a earth shattering

All I did was upgrade the related packages and everything has worked

If you feel up to it (it really isn't that bad if you are at all familiar
with Debian/Linux) just upgrade, and lets have our developers spend time
doing cooler things then maintaining backwards compatibility... besidees
hopefully 2.0 will be out soon :)
