  Take a deep breath, Jeff.  ;-)  Though I do think you are mostly
right, you'll note that 'gslink one net' did, in fact, imply in his
original post that it is nVidia that needs to provide an updated driver.
Though I would be curious as to what the problem actually is, the
implication didn't seem to be that the glibc update was the source of
the problem, but rather that nVidia is lagging again.
