Sorry, didn't cc correctly, sending again.

It's hard because it shows mostly in complex control flow scenarios,
like python interpreter running bittorrent or Galeon. I wasn't able to
come up with simple thing showing this behavior. If you have any
suggestions how to increase stress put on system w/o increasing code's
complexity too much, I'd be grateful. Also, any other suggestions how to
isolate the problem will be appreciated.

I know of at least one other person experiencing virtually identical
problems on totally independent setup, he's being cc'ed. If you're
absolutely positive there is no way for this to be libc issue, I'd like
to hear your bets on what else could have similar impact on system and
show on wide range of apps.
