Description of problem:
With glibc-2.3.1-6 gnumeirc runs fine. I tried several glibc-2.3.1 up
till glibc-2.3.1-32 but with each of them gnumeirc does start but does not show
a window. It just seems to hang.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3.start gnumeric (from a termianl window)
Actual Results: gnumeirc starts but no gnumeirc-window appears
Expected Results: a new gnumeric window should pop up.
I run straces on gnumeirc starts using glibc-2.3.1-6 and glibc-2.3.1-32
using both kernel-2.4.19-0.pp.15 and kernel-2.4.20-2.2.
I'll attached the results...

Looks like some mysterious libc/python thing to me.
