It depends. Which version of the compiler and libraries do you have
installed, and which version was used on the buildd? And is the
current version buildable in sid and wheezy? If so, it's may not be a
release critical bug, although it may still be a bug.

Please check these details (versions of packages, compiler etc.).


I've no idea when Linus is going to release 2.0.24, but if he takes
too long Im going to release a 2.0.24unoff and he can sound off all
he likes.
