Description of problem:
After upgrading rpm from 4.2-0.28 to 4.2-0.48 I cannot upgrade several packages,

Steps to Reproduce:

zsh: segmentation fault (core dumped) rpm -Uvh glibc-common-2.3.1-26.i386.rpm

Observing same behaviour here with glibc-common, can confirm the problem, and
that the file is being transferred from the server properly as the byte counts
I really just wanted to be added to the CC list for this bug report. Does the
new bugzilla not allow this without adding a comment? Seems like this useful
functionality has gone away from the old version... [email@example.com, I've
added you to the CC for this bug so that you get this mail as I note you are
the person bugzilla reports seem to get assigned to]

Well, everyting segfaults with the glibc -26, the system is hosed and unusable, I had
to reboot from RedHat 8.0 CD, start network, tar glibc from another system and
install it here, in order to make it usable again. What is the deal?
Same here. Dig segfaults, rpm segfaults, mozilla does not start, etc...
I switched back to glibc*-2.3.1-6.
Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
