[Linux-ia64] glibc bug / pthread bug???

Has anyone seen this problem or know enough about glibc/threads
to have a good idea about what is busted.


The test case listed below consistently hang using 2.4.18 & glibc-2.2.4-19.3.

If only one instance (fork=1)of the test is run, it runs ok. If multiple copies
of the test are run, it hangs in:

	 *      rt_sigsuspend
	 *      __sigsuspend
	 *      __pthread_wait_for_restart_signal
	 *      pthread_cond_wait
	 *      thread_func
	 *      pthread_start_thread

Has anyone seen this???

/*
  * compile with
  *      gcc -g -Wall -o test test.c -lrt
  *
  * execute 
  *      test [<inner_loop_count> [<outer_loop_count>]]
  *
  *
  * Test creates timer threads that hang in 
  *      rt_sigsuspend
  *      __sigsuspend
  *      __pthread_wait_for_restart_signal
  *      pthread_cond_wait
  *      thread_func
  *      pthread_start_thread
  *
