I suspect that there are still glibc issues.

With 2.3.2.ds1-22, I don't see anywhere this number of fails:

can be fixed by adding locking to the pa compare_and_swap

I made a couple of changes to libjava on head which fixed problems
with java exception handling on the pa:

Possibly, we need to look at back porting these fixes.  However,
the code in 4.0 is different and I wasn't seeing the same errors.
