And Debian :-( It is hard to get rid of such file - GNU 'rm' complains
too, as it tries to stat that file first :-( Fortunately

echo -n > x; rm x

works. I filled bugreport some time ago (when 2.1.94 come to woody), but
it was closed, as there are no 2.4.x headers in Debian, so it is not
possible to recompile glibc against them... Recompiling glibc is enough
for woody, BTW.
