Observing same behaviour here with glibc-common, can confirm the problem, and 
that the file is being transferred from the server properly as the byte counts 
match exactly.

I really just wanted to be added to the CC list for this bug report.  Does the 
new bugzilla not allow this without adding a comment?  Seems like this useful 
functionality has gone away from the old version...   [, I've 
added you to the CC for this bug so that you get this mail as I note you are 
the person bugzilla reports seem to get assigned to]

Comment 3 Sammy 2003-01-02 16:31:26 UTC
Well, everyting segfaults with the glibc -26, the system is hosed and unusable, I had 
to reboot from RedHat 8.0 CD, start network, tar glibc from another system and 
install it here, in order to make it usable again. What is the deal? 

Comment 4 Olivier Baudron 2003-01-02 16:40:59 UTC
Same here. Dig segfaults, rpm segfaults, mozilla does not start, etc...
I switched back to glibc*-2.3.1-6.
