That's strange.. I did test ls, and it worked for me. How does it fail?
Can you ktrace it and see what goes on? Maybe it's a 64-bit ino_t issue.

The newer Linux pthread code uses thread system calls introduced after
Linux 2.4. Some of these are harder to emulate, and have not been
implemented in COMPAT_LINUX yet.
Using an older libpthread *might* work (i.e. a plain linuxthreads one),
but I can't be sure. There's probably some interaction with glibc that
might go wrong.
