Please back that up with facts, otherwise this claim is completely useless.
Red Hat glibc is definitely compatible with Fedora one and to my knowledge
other distributions when applying patches to glibc are just putting in backports
of glibc TRUNK changes, at least if it involves symbol version changes.
glibc-2.3.4 has been widely tested and is certainly stable.
