The difference to use pthread is small - when multiple threads are
used, __libc_writev adds cancellation processing.  If a thread which
sent cancellation signal, writev may be interrupted.

BTW, I guess this problem is already fixed in linux kernel 2.6 + glibc
2.3.5.  Please check the problem again.  If you notice the problem is
already fixed, please let us know.
