I recently upgraded my glibc from 2.0.7 to 2.1.1 and now I cannot get R to
start. I get

  Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

This is with RedHat 5.1, kernel 2.2.1. I got glibc-2.1.1 from the GNU web
site and compiled it myself, then recompiled and installed R.

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
