are you sure these packages really are upgraded? it is possible apt stopped
for some reason (some time) after libc was upgraded, and didn't install new
versions of these packages. it's also possible your mirror doesn't have all
new packages, that's the reason i've 3 mirrors in sources.list, try adding
an other mirror (or ftp to a mirror by hand and look for new apt package).

i'm running libc6 2.2 for some time now, and all are working ok.
if you can't use ftp/wget/lynx, download them from another machine and
transport them to the broken one via nfs or floppy disks.

since woody runs great for me with 2.2, i suspect these failing packages
are just the old ones build for libc6 2.1.x
