/lib/libc.so.6 crashes

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
glibc (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Firstly, /lib/lib.so.6 (symlink to libc-2.3.2.so) isn't even executable.
When made executable and run, it crashes:
~$ sudo chmod +x /lib/libc.so.6
~$ /lib/libc.so.6
Inconsistency detected by ld.so: rtld.c: 1259: dl_main: Assertion
`_rtld_local._dl_rtld_map.l_prev->l_next ==
_rtld_local._dl_rtld_map.l_next' failed!

This is quite wrong, as on Debian sarge /lib/libc.so.6 is executable, and
when run produces:
