Which is really very strange. Anything I could help? I now have a
libpthread that I could use to debug (if I explicitely link that broken
version), if someone tells me what to do.

Added information: tried with LD_LIBRARY_PATH from within gdb with the
-dbg version of libc6 in a separate directory, but the program crashes
before gdb gets its hooks on, or something. Don't know for sure, but its
impossible to do anything in gdb, "run" gives the segfault and then
error messages about the process not existing.

I'm not going to delete debian, just use a different machine for
development :-)
Therefore - yes, I will come back.
