Hi All,
recently there have been reported several issues
on libpthread segfaulting while running simple application.
It has been discovered that users were using linuxthreads implementation
instead of (stable ?) linuxthreads.old.

I don't know what is the current status of linuxthreadsde developmnet,
neither I remember who is doing the development.

I don't have currently any time for investigating on this beinf NPTL
my target implementation, but as a general rule, at least until somebody
will provide a patch for those problems, I'd suggest to all users
to *use linuxthreads.old* library.

Anyway, solving the linuxthreads bug is something to be dobe as well.
