Thanks for the nice summary.

Yes. I spotted this thread a few days ago and read it with interest and came
away concerned. I don't have anything to add as I haven't done any heavy
testing with 2.5.x yet. Haven't seen much on the libc lists either but that
is not surprising seeing as glibc development is heavily influenced by RH.

This issue looks like something we MUST keep a close eye on as 2.5.x/2.6
nears release.
