A quick search shows that at least Redhat, Mandrake and Gentoo issued
security updates for this bug in Nov 2003; I'm pretty sure all other
distros did the same. I do not think it is worth worrying about people
who have not installed a security update for 4 years...

IMHO if you want to avoid libc functions that had some bug on one system
or other in the past then you will likely have to re-implement most of
the C library...
