Are you running glibc CVS from upstream, or are you using the Debian
packages?  If you're using the Debian packages, it's better to report
bugs like this to the BTS (apt-get reportbug) 

The problem is that Debian's glibc is modified to suit the needs of
Debian - so upstream's source will differ, sometimes in important ways. 
If for whatever reason the bug doesn't exist upstream and only exists in
Debian packaging, drepper has been known to be... ummm.. "impatient". =)

(Note that in the recent past, the Debian Glibc maintainers have been
friendly to the Hurd, but not very knowledgeable about it.  This is no
longer the case).
