Thanks for the update.  It seams that something is strange with our
new glibc library and we have two guys trying to simulate this on our

Unfortunately we don't have a copy of the old working glibc due to a
hardware disk crash, which makes it a bit hard for us to reproduce
the old binaries.  Hopefully we get this solved soon.

We will inform you as soon as we have managed to solve this.  The
current state is that wWe know that one can get a working MySQL server
by compiling MySQL on a different build machine without our optimized
glibc library.  The problem is that the optimized glibc library
(similar one to the ones used in 3.23.49a) is needed for a lot of our
'heavy' users and we really need to get this working.

Did you get out of sync errors with 4.0.4 too ?
(Just curious)
