Spent several weeks tracking a weird problem that I was blaming on (amongst 
other things) tcl/tk where a GUI application would lock up totally at random 
intervals. A similar Gtk GUI also suffered, but to a lesser degree..

After running strace and googling for "futex tcl bugs", I ended up here. 
Following the suggestion to upgrade to libc6-2.3.5, I can confirm that the 
problem appears to have disappeared.

My thanks to Don Porter and David Welton for providing the answers..
