It has been two months, time to escalate the issue again :)

I have reimplemented the startup server.  The new server does not
support the startup protocol over its message port.  This change has
not made it into the glibc.  The shutdown isn't working.

Our development process is severely broken.  Or noone gives a shit
anymore.  Or both.  I really cannot tell.
