Hm. All tests were successfull. It seems the update can be broken if it
is not the only package that is updated in one run.

I had this now also on my test pc. I could solve it with coping all
libs from the new to the ol place /lib -> lib64 and /usr/lib
to /usr/lib64. Then I used pacman.static to roll back to the old glibc
2.3.6 and then again to glibc2.4. After that I had only to reinstall
the kernel package and all was fine again.

Sorry for the trouble. If someone can proove if it only appears when
the glibc package is not the only package to update I would write a
small warning to the mailing list to first only pacman -Sy glibc.

I hope we will soon have a new ISO where the paths are correct. BUt
first I have to make all updates from current and archlinux.org server
needs to be prepared for ftp installation.
