Speaking as a Debian developer, I was personally impacted by *several*
breakages in the libc binary API when Debian 2.2 moved from glibc2.0
to 2.1.

Namely, simple libraries like GLib (the partner in crime of GTK+) no
longer worked, because of backwards incompatibilities.

Basically, I wouldn't be surprised at all if this is due to glibc2.1
crap. They really released it far too early, with way too many
backwards incompatibilities..
