This took me some time to figure out, so I hope this mail
will save others some grieve.

After installing the glib2 update from todays updates-testing:

The following happens:
[hans at shalem gspca]$ ldd -r /usr/libexec/e-addressbook-factory
         linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007ffffd3c7000)
         libfreebl3.so => /lib64/libfreebl3.so (0x0000003c41000000)
/usr/bin/ldd: line 118:  5142 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) LD_TRACE_LOADED_OBJECTS=1 LD_WARN=yes LD_BIND_NOW=yes LD_LIBRARY_VERSION=$verify_out LD_VERBOSE= "$@"


Downgrading glibc yields:
[hans at shalem watchdog]$ ldd -r /usr/libexec/e-addressbook-factory
         linux-vdso.so.1 =>  (0x00007fff2f9ff000)
         libfreebl3.so => /lib64/libfreebl3.so (0x0000003c41000000)
undefined symbol: g_unix_signal_add_watch_full  (/usr/libexec/e-addressbook-factory)

Downgrading also glib2 returns the system to working order,
maybe only downgrading glib2 is enough, but the seg fault in
ldd -r does not look good, so I've downgraded glibc too.
