[Pkg-net-snmp-devel] Bug#500717: snmpd reports assert in syslog and does not return data

Package: snmpd
Version: 5.4.1~dfsg-8.1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Since upgrading from etch (stable) to testing, snmpd is reporting this in syslog:
Sep 30 06:25:22 quark snmpd[4507]: netsnmp_assert rc == 0 failed if-mib/ifTable/ifTable_data_access.c:210 _check_interface_entry_for_updates()

And cacti, which is polling it, doesn't get any data (I didn't try snmpdwalk).

If you think the libc6 or kernel below looks strange, that's because this is a xen dom0 and it uses
debian testing now, except for xen and the kernel. That's from ubuntu. But xen requires libc6 2.8
(it is the latest; I installed that today). And I use that kernel for HW support.
(now that I'm at it, debian is not intending to ship 2.6.18 for xen in lenny, does it?)
