glibc-2.3.2 NPTL caveat

We just discovered a nasty bug in glibc-2.3.2 which can lead to
"random" memory corruption in multi-threaded applications using NPTL.
This definitely affects Debian/{testing,unstable}, but it may affect
other distros as well.  I also believe that the CVS glibc still has
this bug, so I suspect it's not just glibc-2.3.2 that's affected.
