Problem with thread specific data destructor


I'm trying to debug a problem [1] with building the Licq packages on
Hurd. They fail in a unittest that tests thread specific data

I downloaded a qemu image and spent some time debugging it without any
luck. Everything seems ok, but the destructor is never called.

To see if it was a problem with the pthread implementation I created a
simple test program [2]. The "problem" is that this works, so now I
don't really know where to continue debugging.

Does anyone on this list have an idea where the problem might be or a
pointer to where I should continue searching?

Please CC me as I'm not subscribed to the list.

void deleter(void* data)
  printf("in deleter with %p\n", data);

void* threadfn(void* data)
  pthread_setspecific(*(pthread_key_t*)data, (void*)1);
  return NULL;

int main()
  pthread_key_t key;
  pthread_key_create(&key, deleter);

  pthread_t thread;
  pthread_create(&thread, 0, threadfn, &key);
  pthread_join(thread, 0);


  return 0;
