Information on this bug is not very clear. What errata
release? The error exists in 5.0. I just ran this code
against processes on my machine, successfully killing root
owned processes, as a non-priviledged user. I have updated
from the lastest glibc rpms (11/17/98).
It's not a glibc bug - the bug is in the kernel, and it's fixed in
the latest kernel errata for 4.2/5.0/5.1.
