Ack!  Be careful of this... the libc6 work they're doing is a major
upgrade to libc6 meaning at some point *everything* will have to be
recompiled.  Until then you risk all sorts of problems if your running old
binaries against a new libc6, let alone the possible issues with a beta
libc6 kernel.

I plan on waiting until a complete upgrade is available, ie when sid is

That said, it's not too much work to download the source files and build
the package for your system.  Most things in sid requiring the new libc6
can be compiled locally with a minimum of effort and no coding and will
then work flawlessly.  I can explain these steps if anyone would like to
hear them.

I'd suggest downloading the source and fixing the debian/control file...
it sounds like there's an improper entry in there that is conflicting.
