Package: wvdial
Version: 1.61-4.1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

1. 11-03-2018
After the command: apt-get upgrade
I've updated the following packages:
  base-files bsdutils cron cups cups-client cups-common cups-core-drivers
  cups-daemon cups-ppdc cups-server-common dbus dbus-user-session dbus-x11
  fonts-opensymbol gir1.2-javascriptcoregtk-4.0 gir1.2-webkit2-4.0
  grilo-plugins-0.3 isc-dhcp-client isc-dhcp-common libapparmor1 libblkid1
  libc-bin libc-dev-bin libc-l10n libc6 libc6-dev libcups2 libcupscgi1
  libcupsimage2 libcupsmime1 libcupsppdc1 libdbus-1-3 libfdisk1
  libjavascriptcoregtk-4.0-18 libmount1 libncurses5 libncursesw5

  util-linux-locales uuid-runtime

2.Then I launched WVDIAL
root@debian:/home/mydebi# wvdial
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.61

wvdial: utils/ static int WvTaskMan::yield(int): Assertion `*current_task->stack_magic == WVTASK_MAGIC' failed.
The connection has been established, the internet works but this nasty message :(

3.The dependency analysis indicated that the above two files: libc6 and libc6-dev appear as dependencies in libwvstreams4.6-base (my version is: 4.6.1-11). I decided to check it out. I restored the previous version (with the Timeshift program) and then (in Synaptic) I only updated these files:
libc-dev-bin (2.24-11+deb9u1) to 2.24-11+deb9u3
libc6 (2.24-11+deb9u1) to 2.24-11+deb9u3
libc6-dev (2.24-11+deb9u1) to 2.24-11+deb9u3
After starting WVDIAL, this nasty message has appeared again:
wvdial: utils/ static int WvTaskMan::yield(int): Assertion `*current_task->stack_magic == WVTASK_MAGIC' failed.

4.The next day I downloaded the newest version of DEBIAN 9.4.0 LIVE. And exactly the same message as above

5.I've tried two different USB modems

6. !!! CONCLUSION !!!. The problem (error) is probably in the updated files: libc-dev-bin, libc6 or libc6-dev or in the absence of actualization the libwvstreams4.6-base file (my version is: 4.6.1-11)
