It was wrongly closed and reopened.

As I wrote earlier, there is a package from a PPA which reapplies a
patch to glibc to fix this. But it reopens two other bugs. Laurent's
suggestion seems better, but I can't test it here (I'm in Dallas at
UDS). I can test it next week when I'm back home, or someone else test
Laurent's suggestion first.
