Actually, it is the right patch for hurd-i386. This is a known issue on
the Hurd's libpthread (ldb needs to be linked with pthread explicitly
because it uses tdb which itself uses libpthread).
I'm not sure I follow. tdb doesn't use pthreads either.
Sorry, my bad, I was confused by the fact that there is code using pthreads
in tdb, but it's not used on GNU/Hurd indeed.

The problem is actually the ldap module, which uses pthreads (via libldap):

mmenal@hurd1:~/ldb-1.1.17$ ldd bin/modules/ldb/ldap.so |grep pthread
         libpthread.so.0.3 => /lib/i386-gnu/libpthread.so.0.3 (0x01464000)

This module gets dlopen()'ed by ldb_init(), which triggers the bug mentioned
(which is also described here:

Linking ldb against pthread on GNU/Hurd actually fixes the problem.
s/fixes/works around/
Yes, that's more accurate.
Thanks, I'll add this patch to the ldb package.
Thank you a lot for your time and consideration!
Do you have a pointer to the bug in Debian's tracker for the issue in
pthread on the Hurd?
That would be #578432.
