I noticed this as well and at first I was thinking that nouveau started to be unstable. Seems is not the nouveau fault since after downgrading to core version, everything is fine

With an ATI graphics card I had similar problems. All problems gone downgrading from glibc 2.15-1 to 2.14.1-4.

I have the same problem, firefox hangs.
Additional, with glibc-2.15-1 gnome always starting in fallback mode. After downgrade these problems disappeared.

Can I get some strace output of a hang?
Comment by Allan McRae (Allan) - Tuesday, 27 December 2011, 22:12 GMT
Also, please provide details of which architecture you are using.

Had to downgrade too.

Using x86_64 version, with testing fully up to date, but not for gcc and glibc.

Freeze when trying to close firefox for example. Can't do a strace sorry. But I noticed it busted also qemu and a lot of programs.

Hi, I don't think that my problem related with glibc but after upgrade to new glibc (2-15-1) and gcc (unrelated completely for the case) svn crashes:
$ LANG=C svn --version
Ошибка сегментирования [segfault]

Running svn under gdb gives following (attached svn-version.log)...

P.S. I didn't reboot after upgrading. Now I'm recompiling kernel (I need support for elantech touchpad, not in 3.1 version) after installing "new" kernel package I'll try again and report.

Problem with svn still here.

P.S. Forgot to add: Archlinux x86_64.

Please file a separate bug report for subversion - it is entirely unrelated to this report.
Comment by Vladimir (_v_l) - Wednesday, 28 December 2011, 05:23 GMT
Done:
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/27743

P.S. Of course I suspected glibc because problem arose after update.
Comment by Allan McRae (Allan) - Wednesday, 28 December 2011, 08:03 GMT
The hanging issue should be fixed in glibc-2.15-2.

While problems with Firefox and Chromium are gone with new glibc-2.15-2 still I have one problem (downgrading the problem disappear) this time building AUR packages using svn:

Checked with tint2-svn and qlandkartegt-svn (both works with 2.14.1-4).

If more information (or translation) is necessary, please, don't hesitate to ask.
