Hehehe... I used to live near Redmond.  And actually, it has some great places
to rock climb, not to mention the fact it has my favorite sandwich place,
But.... I think Kevin was right, and so are you, it is a system problem because
I think I downloaded an older libc5 version, instead of a glibc.  So in
actuality, nothing's really -broken-, it's just a version difference.  Change
is good.  I -could- go download a glibc asclock, I just didn't know that's what
I had until the solution was found anyways.
