Current glibc does not support TLS under 2.4 kernels (see #226716), so
this is probalby glibc bug (some people call it feature).
I'm going to install 2.6 kernel to check if the problem goes away.

aptitude install linux-image-2.6.16-1-686-smp

fails with numerious errors, e.g. due to initrd generation scripts 
expecting /sys to be mounted, so I need some time to figure out how to
fix things and write bug report[s].

This document does not mention that (user-space) software will break
under 2.4 kernels. Making this (more) explicit would help to avoid confusion.
