I hope that I didn't misrepresent that changes from:
  * Forward-port Kurt Roeckx's patch from bug#281059.
    - Add fast mutexes for MIPS and amd64.
    - Add --enable-pthreadsmutexes to configure.
  * Remove LD_ASSUME_KERNEL hack, since the
    --enable-pthreadsmutexes option defaults to off.
(from db4.3 changelog)

(But I meant that change - with dropping the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL hack, this
problem should AFAICS also disappear.)
