Yes, that's quite unfortunate.

That would be great.

Unstable wouldn't be so bad, as a fixed glibc is on the (distant) horizon.
However, for stable it would be a sad regression.

That's fine for me.

I just did a test rebuild of the reverse dependencies (c-icap-modules
dansguardian havp python-clamav) and all build successfully.
Note however that for some reason libc-icap-mod-virus-scan doesn't
depend on libclamav6/7 anymore since version 1:0.4.1-1 of c-icap-modules.

Best regards,
