From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
As in summary, all goes well until yum crashes out with the glibc error. 
Attempted update of yum, same error.
Attempted update of glibc, same error.
Dropped run-level to 3, rebooted.
Attempted system update again... Awaiting results (0227hrs UTC)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.yum -C update
2.OR yum update
3.OR yum update PKGNAME

Actual Results:  glibc detected error, as stated in summary.

Expected Results:  Package updating.

Additional info:

System in question is a 1.3 Duron (*Wince*). 256SDram. 80gbHDD. Plenty of space. TOP reports no excessive memory usage or CPU usage. All seems to be running okay up until the error.

Will give more information as I can. Performing all this remotely, so have limited information, but this error occoured six or seven times in a row.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2005-08-10 21:57:26 EDT
It happens when updating any single package?  Can you run yum with -d6 and
provide the output?
Comment 2 A. Easton 2005-08-10 22:47:19 EDT
I will, as soon as able. It's still running the attempted update after runlevel
change. It's a clean install, so it's a lot of updating. If this works, then
obviously it was probably an oddity related to the machine, but I'll update you
as soon as I have information.
Comment 3 A. Easton 2005-08-11 11:39:30 EDT
Okay. Update as follows... After rebooting, YUM completed it's update fine, with
no errors relating to this bug.

I can therefore only assume it was an isolated (Although repeatable) issue,
which was resolved by a reboot of the system.

Going to close issue as NOTABUG, as this really does appear to be an isolated
