pthread is buggy, at least up to glibc 2.1 on each linux distro I used
(RH, SuSE, debian stable). I get deadlocks on a test-program I had to
write for work (not related to kaffe at all). This is known and I got
the advice to upgrade to glibc 2.2.
I did that on one system (debian
stable -> progeny), but still got a deadlock, be it in the longest run
of the test-program ever (didn't do any further tests).
