Please don't take it wrong but Akemi gave you the link because not 
everyone reads the forums and the issue was discussed there.

I would like to advice everyone to install the glibc package. The 
security impact of not doing so is too high. Only one who is affected by 
Evolution breakage should not do so.

Again please don't take it wrong but I think the tone of this thread is 
wrong, the security fix is just too important.
