Well, let's see:

1. I've traced the mysql build failure far enough to know that it is
dumping core inside a calloc call.

2. The crash happens with glibc-2.9.90-12, not with -14, again with -15.

3. It happens with mysql 5.1.32 as well as 5.1.33, meaning I've got a
due-to-be-released-if-I-can't-update-it package that FTBFS.

Now, I do not have proof at this point that it's really a glibc bug
and not a glibc behavioral change that is within spec but tickles some
previously unseen mysql bug.  It's highly unlikely that I could prove
anything either way before Tuesday's freeze, especially if I harbor
any illusions about being able to take the holiday off.  Whichever way
it falls out, we've got an unnecessary change in a core system library
destabilizing things just a few days before "final freeze", and I am not
happy about that.
