I have same problem on partialy updated 32b debian lenny running OMSA 6 from 
sara.nl. Other lenny servers are running just fine.
I've tried to downgrade snmpd back to stable version, but it didn't solve the 
Downgrade to OMSA 5 didn't solve it either.
I'm affraid it's libc6 problem. But I can't downgrade this one because the 
server is already in production running some packages from squeeze.
