There is no way of saying what is going on.  The kernel message just means that the segfault happens while executing some code from glibc.  Not that the problem is in glibc.  It most likely isn't.

You'll have to provide much more detail.  Install the glibc-debuginfo package and run the program in question under gdb.

I now have:-

vlc-0.9.9.2.fc10.i386
glibc-2.9.3-i686

installed and there is no longer a problem.(In reply to comment #2)
