    This is here for some actual testing - don't go just jumping into this one
    all willy-nilly, especially if you're on 32-bit. The internal implementation
    of some glibc functions has changed in ways that can break sandboxes that
    restrict the allowable functions. So far this is known to affect
    qt5-webengine and openssl, and in the case of openssl upgrading to this
    version of glibc will lock out ssh access to the machine. I've seen one
    mention of the openssh issue online as a comment posted to LWN's article
    about the release of glibc-2.33. It says that a patch was submitted upstream,
    but I haven't been able to locate a copy yet.
    On the qt5 issue, alienBOB has given me a link to this patch:
    https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/qt5-qtwebengine/blob/09e1adb883639325aa8115dc1fc3e8f5088a2438/f/qtwebengine-everywhere-src-5.15.2-%231904652.patch
    If anyone has a fix for openssl on 32-bit, kindly post it to LQ.
