uhm... the problem is not Linux based...
a double-free can also be a problem on Solaris...
though the more prudent question is, which programs and/or services
use zlib and tkae untrusted datastreams ?
for example, are you gonna rebuild libpng, or openssl ?
at our site we've decided that stuff like openssl will get rebuild
and/or patched. But 'xv' for example won't... That'll be just
scheduled for "normal" rebuild on update...
