Hi Folks,

Well this is interesting.

I went to do an upgrade world (its been a couple of weeks), and found that
the version of glibc I currently have installed is newer than what the
latest release is.  glibc-2.3.2-r11 is latest stable, and I've apparently
got glibc-2.3.3_pre20040207.

That doesn't even appear on the packages list anymore.  Sooo, how do I
"downgrade??" or should I just wait until the newer versions are marked

I do have KEYWORDS = "~alpha" so I'm guessing a previous upgrade world
brought me to this state.

Any thoughts/suggestions appreciated.

Output to follow below...

emerge -puv world

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
