I have been able to find a machine to reproduce the issue. I have found
that the issue is not present when eglibc is built with gcc-4.4, so this
looks like a miscompilation.
I have switched i386 to gcc-4.3, with the hopes that the issue affecting
some Pentium 4 models when eglibc is built with gcc-4.4 is now gone.
