That's it! Pulled version 2.11.2-13 of the libc-involved libraries, run
dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-2.6.37-1-amd64 to generate a new ramdisc
and it works!
Thanks a lot, Wolodia, and love you guys for your quick and precise
support!

KR, m

P.S. Heard about apt-listbugs the 1st time, installed it but it seems to
have an issue itself:
apt-listbugs apt

E: apt Pre-Install-Pkgs is not giving me expected 'VERSION 2' string.

I have never attempted to run apt-listbugs manually. It is typically
automatically invoked during the install/upgrade process and queried for
applicable bugs for the packages you are about to install/upgrade.

If there are indeed serious or grave bugs that apply to one of these packags,
you can choose to abort the installation altogether or pin selected packages
to the version you have installed.

While we are at it, another useful tool that is comparable to apt-listbugs is
apt-listchanges, which will bring important changes to your attention.

A quick look at the manpage reveals that you have to specify one of the
supported commands. Let's try "list":

$ apt-listbugs list apt/0.8.11.5
serious bugs of apt (0.8.11.5 -> 0.8.11.5) <unfixed>
#558784 - apt: re-adds removed keys
Summary:
apt(1 bug)

voilą!

Ah, let's try it for the current case:

apt-listbugs list libc-bin/2.11.2-12
Reading package fields... Done
Reading package status... Done
Retrieving bug reports... Done
Parsing Found/Fixed information... Done
serious bugs of libc-bin (2.11.2-13 -> 2.11.2-12) <marked as done in some version>
#615839 - Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found (Fixed: eglibc/2.11.2-13)
Merged with: 615806
Summary:
libc-bin(1 bug)

Looks good. Hopefully this tool does not slow down a dist-upgrade too
much if it looks up bugs for almost 2.3k packages. I'm looking forward
to the next upgrade to see it in action.
