On Ubuntu 10.04 I tried to run 3rd party commercial application [Written in C] (I did not have sources for it). It was crashing constantly without special reason (segmentation fault). An error looked like was related to the threading library. I did not have any problems on RHEL 5.7 so I decided to remove package libc6-686. This helped immediately and crashes stopped. I understand that now I use regular libc6 on the systems. How big non optimized libc6 could bring performance degradation to the rest of the system?
