What kind of system are you using? I am running 1.9.14 on a glibc-2.1.2
based Linux system (SuSE 6.3), and I never encountered this problem.
What is your output of

nm /lib/libc.so.6 | head

? AFAIK this is the only way of finding out about the glibc version;
in my case, the relevant information looks like this:

00000000 A GLIBC_2.0
00000000 A GLIBC_2.1
00000000 A GLIBC_2.1.1
00000000 A GLIBC_2.1.2

If this turns out to be a problem with a glibc version, I expect a lot
of fun in the near future *sigh* .

BTW, is it possible to get a filename from a FILE descriptor?
