I already mailed Brent earlier and submitted this to debian-glibc... but in case
anyone needs the patch, apply this to 2.1.2pre2-5 (current version as of
08/07/99 this morning)...

HJL sent me this and it fixes the pthreads bug.. I tested OmniORB2 with it and
it started right up as soon as I replaced my libc...
