What works is generally 'ok', having backups with a reliable way of
using them is 'good' [ so, I think I'm still trying to avoid an
answer :-) ]

Maybe the segfault is evidence of a different problem (heat, or
hardware beginning to fail). It's always difficult to be specific
about what causes the problem.

Well, if it prevents you installing a win program, I think it's
probably working _very_ nicely! Your system, so you get to
determine the value of 'nicely'.

I suggest you do the minimum necessary - it if seems to work, you
got away with the upgrade, which is great. If you want a _reliable_
system, rebuild _everything_ after upgrading glibc - but if you
intended to do that, a full upgrade to current versions of everything
(in other words, a fresh install of a new system) would be better.
