  Dug out the patch from the libc-hacker archives, but I had to apply it 
by hand, I think the line numbers changed a bit too much for patch to 
figure it out.  Can you confirm this is what you want put in, and can I 
stick your name in the 'submitted by' ?  I was thinking of calling it 

  My understanding from what Jakub put in the posting is that this only 
applies if the standard directories are empty, e.g. in a chroot.
