I have file `/lib/libc-2.3.2.so', so I suppose that means the first
requirement fails?  Or how do I check?
Probably, yes. You can check for sure by unpacking the source of
/lib/libc-2.3.2.so and looking whether the ChangeLog contains this

I'm afraid I don't have the sources.

The GPL guarantees you access to the sources. However, most probably, they came with the Linux CD you installed your system from, or are available from the Debian site...

Do you mean this problem exists on new distributions?
Newer distros use newer glibcs and therefore will not have this problem.

That's true.  Just very sad that this problem was fixed not long ago
and is still present in some _current_ new distros (Debian Sarge is
quite new.)  I assume there is no way to overcome it other than
upgrading libc (which I cannot demand from users)?

Oh, you have lots of choices. This includes building a fixed version of libc yourself, updating your deployed systems to a newer OS release, living with the problem, finding a workaround, or finding some other tool to use.
