*sigh* Postgres runs just fine on a bug-free version of glibc2. We've heard
rumors that 2.0.7-pre1 from Debian is close enough, but I can't duplicate that
on my RH5.0 production box with Cristian's RH glibc2-2.0.7 package.

btw Cristian, that library in /home/gafton has most files labeled as 2.0.6; is
that expected or are there possibly some more patches available? I tried
installing on my RH5.0 production system and still see the

  select '1 min'::timespan;

problem. Haven't had any luck picking out the math code and duplicating the
problem in a 10 line program yet either :(

Also, v6.3 has some extensive new documentation which you will want to get
into /usr/doc, including 4 hardcopy and html manuals. There is a Makefile in
the source doc/ distribution to extract them. Let me know if you want more
