Thank you for reporting this issue. But gv 3.6.7 is the latest version, not gv 3.6.2. Which version do you really mean?

Well, I do not have every distribution to test with, but on Fedora 10 (without updates) it worked for me. On debian's bug tracker, there is no bug reporting with this issue and the debian gv maintainer reports GNU gv 3.6.7 being working on debian unstable - and yes, debian testing and unstable are shipped with glibc 2.9. So any instructions how to reproduce this bug would be helpful. Then we can investigate what goes wrong.
