Updating glibc might be a very good cause. First, how big was the
update? from what version to what version? What OS? Have you tried other 
parts of blender that use stl intensively? I don't know if eeshlo and me 
are the only ones.

Ok, send me a file as soon as you isolate the bug. Thanks for the help.
