FWIW, the glibc people seem to have introduced binary incompatibilities
into glibc - I currently know of at least one case where 2.1.3 and 2.2.1
have different structure size (somewhere in ipc).
You might want to actually compare the physical sizes of the structs.
[This is definitely not a 2.2 vs 2.4 kernel issue]
