I'm having this problem with the latest release.  I just checked and there
is not a more recent one available.
I fixed the problem (for the moment) by down-grading to the previous
version of glibc.  Also submitted a bug report, since I found a number of
things that seemed to be related, but nothing that matched, and some notes
that seemed to imply that the problem had been fixed (perhaps just in RH9),

which it has clearly not been, in RH8, anyway.
