A patch for udev would be the best (do you have it available as a patch),
then I can build a custom udev whenever an update occurs. Do you have it
somewhere on the web/dropbox whatever? But /sbin/udev is also a good choice
for now. Maybe send both as attachment to my private mail. THANKS!

this is fixed in glibc 2.13-1, unfortunately on debian-ports is only
2.11.2-13. So we have to wait until buildds are working :( Maybe I try to
compile the libc package (hours of waiting included...)

I was confused about the whole discussion, thanks for making it clear.
