glibc-961111 problems

I've been experiencing the same problems the others have after upgrading
to glibc-961111. Another problem I haven't see anyone mention is that I
was unable to get PAM to work with shadow passwords after the upgrade.
Anyone else experience this? Doing an strace on /bin/login as I connect
to the machine shows it opening the /etc/shadow file and reading it, but
it will not accept my password as valid.

Other problems I noticed:

bash/pwd doesn't show the right path initially when I login.
(shane) sea[1]:/usr/ho}e1/shane$ pwd
(shane) sea[2]:/usr/ho}e1/shane$ cd
(shane) sea[3]:~$ pwd
(shane) sea[4]:~$

awk, grep, sed and a slew of others complain about an
undefined reference in /lib/

When compiling *anything* I get:
cc1: /tmp/ccaXXX: no such file or directory

I immediately discarded the glibc snapshot and went back to the previous
version that comes with RedHat 4..0.

I'm running Linux 2.0.25 on a UDB with 64mb of memory. The root
filesystem on the UDB is NFS-mounted from a Sparc running Solaris 2.5
