> It's probably a libc bug

The bug looks to be specific to the GNU libc. It exists in glibc-2.11.3 and glibc-2.12.2. I suppose that all versions of the GNU libc are affected. The bug has been fixed:
http://sourceware.org/git/?p=glibc.git;a=commitdiff;h=d26dfc60edc8

I don't know which versions will include the fix.

I don't think that Python can workaround the bug, and so the issue should be fixed.
