Please don't take this the wrong way, but not everybody reads the
forums. Perhaps it is possible to give a heads up about such breakage
via the CentOS general or announce mailing list before such a broken
package is released into the wild? That would actually make it an
advantage to swim down stream :-) .

I would like to advice everyone to avoid this update by adding
exclude=glibc*2.5-58.el5_6.2 nscd*2.5-58.el5_6.2
to their updates channel config - added it to base just to be sure -
until upstream releases a fix.
