According to Tomas Hoger setSymbol is also affected, but in both cases
they appear to be ICU bugs. I will have to investigate whether we
want/can fix them in ICU directly.

FTR, the problem is already partially mitigated by the suhosin extension, heh.

Thanks for the upload.

P.S. The commit related to CVE-2010-1128 that you added to
debian-lenny is not really worthy, IMHO. Based on the analysis, the
patch only really helps Windows, where the situation is worse because
gettimeofday() is emulated via a function that doesn't provide
microseconds resolution, AFAIR. Hence my note on DSA-2089.
That said, I don't oppose to including it on the next upload.
