- failure of regexec to report matches at offsets past INT_MAX
- static-pie executables with initialized thread-local storage crashed
- printf failed to catch EOVERFLOW in some cases, wrongly produced it in others
- printf produced wrong output, result for float with precision near INT_MAX
- printf produced wrong results with alt-form octal, zero flag, & field width

- strtod family rounded incorrectly in several corner cases
- getmntent failed to handle long records
- getopt_long_only wrongly treated "--" as an option
