rawhide report: 20080327 changes: glibc breaks xargs?

Starting with Thursday's updates, and continuing with today's, xargs is
given the following error:

xargs: xargs.c:443: main: Assertion `bc_ctl.arg_max <= (131072-2048)' failed.

This start happening immediately after yum finish, and I was running
repomanage to clear some room.  I suspect the glibc update.

I shortened the list of files by running through head into a new file,
but that shortened list would not work either.
