Even harder : how to tell if a potentially broken version of glibc has
been fixed or not ?

I see 2 solutions:
1/ open libc.so and check for a known signature of the fixed lib (braindead)
2/ do not workaround glibc bug in vlc: after all that's not our
problem and may be the easiest solution once some fixed packages are
