Well, the question is whether we can't do better than sincerely hoping.
Can we prepare a report that
a) prominently and clearly demonstrates that there is a _large_ problem
b) prominently and clearly gives a working solution for fixing the
c) get this out to all relevant parties in time.

So far, I've been juggling with binaries to avoid the problem, but
that's no working solution for a distribution, in particular not one
compiled from source.

Is there a clear picture somewhere about what causes the problem?  And a
reliable recipe for avoiding it?
