I'm in a world of hurt with claws-mail going into "parked" state if I
do an (as yet unknown) number of things. There is no return from this place.

Its fully understood current is not a dependency platform, so I know
I'm in caveat emptor. I just want to help track this down, if its

If I can supply a debug state to somebody to help debug this, let me
know. It started about 4 days ago, I have re-made/installed world
multiple times via since then, keeping myself up-to-date.

gnumeric can also go to the same place, doing transient window popups.

I haven't re-made any GTK/GNOME/X related libraries. I am not sure
where the threads dependency for claws or gnumeric comes in. As yet,
there is no "parking" going on in Firefox, which is where I believe this
has previously been seen.

The LDD state on the binary's direct dependencies tells me this:

/usr/pkg/lib/      	-lpthread.0 => /usr/lib/
/usr/pkg/lib/     	-lpthread.0 => /usr/lib/
/usr/pkg/lib/        -lpthread.0 => /usr/lib/
/usr/pkg/lib/     -lpthread.0 => /usr/lib/
/usr/pkg/lib/        -lpthread.0 => /usr/lib/
/usr/pkg/lib/        -lpthread.0 => /usr/lib/
/usr/pkg/lib/     -lpthread.0 => /usr/lib/

do I have to re-make the back-end lib chain to remove something? 

and a heads-up to anyone else who might be living on the edge: its a
bit crumbly on the cliff-top at the moment..
