GHC static binaries with glibc-2.12?

Hi all,

I recently upgraded my Arch Linux system to glibc 2.12 and static
binaries compiled with GHC 6.12.3 all fail with the message
"mkTextEncoding: invalid argument (Invalid argument)". This did not
happen with glibc 2.11. Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone
have any advice for debugging it?
