Trivial, correct Xaw program runs wrong with glibc-2.2.90-6

Save the following as foo.c and compile it with "gcc -g foo.c -L/usr/X11R6/lib
main(int argc, char *argv)
top = XtVaOpenApplication(&context, "Test", NULL, 0, &argc, argv,
text = XtVaCreateManagedWidget("text", asciiTextWidgetClass, top,
Now run it with glibc-2.2.90-6.i686.rpm installed. You will see an empty window
when what you *should* see is a window displaying /etc/termcap.
Now run the same program (you don't even need to recompile it) with
glibc-2.2.4-19.3.i686.rpm installed. It will run properly, i.e., you'll see
/etc/termcap in the window.
Obviously, this trivial program is not the one I care about :-); it's just a
test case to illustrate a problem I discovered with a much more useful program,
In short, glibc-2.2.90-6 is broken.
This problem goes away with the glibc-2.2.90-7 that Jakub asked me to try.
