I can confirm that glibc-2.25-7.fc26 fixes the Unity issue for Steam games. jemalloc workaround is no longer required.

Confirmed that the reproducer in bug #1440287 no longer hangs on 100 runs. Also, rest of system seems to work.

This update has been pushed to stable.

This fixes segfaults in dnf, evolution, libreport itself every 4 seconds and other software when my smartcard was plugged in, which uses a proprietary pkcs11 module due to #1440287. Everything seems to work so far.

Automated Test Results

Test results and gating status may sometimes conflict as the gating status is retrieved periodically by Bodhi's backend server, while the test results presented here are retrieved upon page load. If your update is marked as gated while all the tests show green/passed, the next check of gating status should open the gate.
