I was thinking of the suggestion that Alexander made in the BLFS 
bugzilla: using the glibc 2.3.4 patch. About that particular bug, 
though, I'd like to ask again, what steps are necessary to reproduce it? 
I've never seen it and I've used the 6.1-x LiveCDs extensively which 
supposedly contain the bug.

Even if we just did that, IMHO, it would be better than an errata. 
Especially considering that a 6.2 or 7.0 release seems a long way off 
and several of those bugs are security issues.
