** Emacs crashes on startup after a glibc upgrade.
This is caused by a binary incompatible change to the malloc
implementation in glibc 2.5.90-22. As a result, Emacs binaries built
using prior versions of glibc crash when run under 2.5.90-22.
This problem was first seen in pre-release version of Fedora 7, and
may be fixed in the final Fedora 7 release. To stop the crash from
happening, first try upgrading to the newest version of glibc; if this
does not work, rebuild Emacs with the same version of glibc that you
will run it under. For details, see
