     This is why I do "ls" to be sure I know
     exactly which library file(s) are installed
     on any given machine. If you look in 2.2.2 you
     will always get 2.2.2, that isn't always the
     libc in use :-(

Actually, you have to look in /usr/lib as well, to see where
actually points, then check that if the version isn't self explanitor.
And in looking at this, I see that my mail system is __OLD__ indeed.
Maybe an upgrade is needed.
