Markus, do you know why is gv so sensitive to the exact libc version?
It seems surprising.
Sorry, no idea. The only thing I can tell you that I sucessfully installed it in a virtual machine running Fedora 10 (without any updates), which is shipped with "glibc-2.9-2.i386.rpm". Fedora Rawhide (the upcoming Fedora 11) contains GNU gv 3.6.7 and in Redhat's bugzilla there is no bug reporting any problems with it. IIRR Fedora 10 contains GNU gv 3.6.6 (at least after installing all available updates). Again no bug report can be found in redhat's bugzilla.

So to tell the truth: I do not know how to handle this bug report.

@Bernhard: Are there any problems of this kind known in debian testing and/or unstable (they are shipped with glibc 2.9 according to http://packages.qa.debian.org/g/glibc.html ) ?
